Instructions For A Common Ceremony

Fill the kettle up.
Put the kettle on.
Let the water boil.
Let the water cool.

Cap the cup with cone.
Filter in the cone.
Breathe the coffee smell.
Spoon the coffee in.

Pour the water through.
Soak the coffee wet.
Water only once.
Let the water work.

Throw the coffee dregs.
Drink the coffee drug.
Feel your tongue respond,
powering up your head.
