Don’t mean a thing
When have you an idea
Brimming in your head
And it needs to find
A way to escape.
It doesn’t matter
As long as the words are captured
As long as the idea is born in fine print.
On a piece of paper
Just don’t mean a thing.

No, I don't know if the coffee in caffeinated or decaffeinated (most likely caffeinated). Nor can I tell you what brand of coffee ( if it came from home) or from which coffee house it came from (maybe Coffee Bean in L.A. or Dutch Bros. in Spokane) .
It is one of many journals or notebooks I have around my room that I've stored over the years. Many are filled with notes, a few verses, class instructions, ideas for lesson plans, or notes for various articles I eventually wrote. Often, the stuff in them are forgettable or not worth the time to print. This was one of the exception. It had a lot to say in only a few words.
