Empty Winter House ?or- a coffee commercial?

What if every affine thing fell out of love
What if all the love leaked out the sides
Love spelled capital L capital dove capital you capital me
Transformed, still symmetrical, but discrete
Can any more dangerous a world be imagined?
As the joy in my heart drained into the nostalgia of an empty home,
I faced what would be a lifelong empty cup of coffee
Stained at the bottom, a few grinds, that funny film of curdled milk
We should all be in one place
We should fill that place with love
Put a froth of cream on top to keep that heat in.
Cup that place in our hands
Sip from it.
As prayer.
