About the poetess
Sanne lives in Bern, but is of Dutch roots. She recently started writing again, after what she defined as a troublesome period.
“I recently started writing again. Picking up the pen. Not as much as I want to, due to circumstances. But, I will get there… where that may be.
This poetess publishes her work on the social medium Instagram, like many poets do.
About the poem
The poem Coffee talks to me is about, what she calls, a delightful feeling. There is also a metaphor included about her own life. Those little voices:
“Coffee reflects my own mind. It talks to me, with those little voices. Voices that warn you about things, but also tell you about wonderful things. It’s okay, as long as you not listen to them when they say ‘jump. That is one advise not to follow.”
Coffee talks to me
talks to me
Drink me to the last drop
carefully placing your lips on top
Come on and drink me
until I am no longer free
Please -please me
Don’t drink tea
Instead, drink me
Cup of me at the daybreak
Drink me, when eating cake
All day long, drink me until I am gone
to scare the yawn
talks to me
