Your enthusiasm exhausts me
This coke is flat
The bubbles disperse
Leaving a sticky and sweet
Aftertaste
Makes me nauseous
It’s the combination
Of bubbles and sweet
That reaches the
Back of my tongue
The roof of my mouth
And yet too often
It fails to excite
My taste buds
I have to take a break
To appreciate
Enjoy once more
Your enthusiasm exhausts me
