She Still Puts Out: An Ode

She may not be as pretty as she was when you first met.
You may have to clean up after her sometimes.
And yeah, maybe, there are better ones out there but you don’t need them
As long as she still puts out.

When you go into the kitchen and she’s hard at work,
That’s magical.
Maybe clean her up, show her off to your friends,
As long as she still puts out.

She gives you exactly what you want,
She has been with you on those cold, cold mornings.
She will be with you forever,
As long as she still puts out.

I love you, darling coffee maker.
Mistress of the black strength.
Provider of the delicious brew.
Dispenser of grounded wisdom.

Sometime, you leak.
Sometimes, you reek.
But you still give me what I need:
You still put out.
