first cup of coffee


Coffee is not for me
It's a drink some people wake up with
That it makes them nervous is no myth
Coffee is not for me

In music class in the 3rd grade, the teacher taught the class a song about coffee, no doubt to dissuade us from drinking the evil liquid.

On the coffee stained background, a little memory of my first cup of coffee. I was working on an accounting internship away from college senior year. There was nothing to eat or drink at the oil refinery except over-boiled old burnt coffee, which I poured into a tiny styrofoam cup and added fake powdered creamer. 

I used correction tape, papermate ball-point pen and cuttings from art journal pages (see chopped and chopped ii). Like Confetti is another page with correction tape but brighter and more vivid.
