An Ode to Dunkin’ Donuts

by Nicole DeMarco


Hazelnut coffee
Tasty and caffeinated
Even better iced

Goes well with muffins
Blueberry and even corn
Donuts of all sorts

Cramming for a test
My Dunkin’ keeps me awake
Should I want a rest

Morning companion
Hangover recovery
My classroom comrade

Nearing your demise
Condensation everywhere
You’re gone and I cry
