Chocolate, For You

I made this for you.
A steaming mug of chocolate,
fresh from the saucepan. Bubbling
away on the stove, steam poured out.
When I finished it, sun began
peeking through the clouds.
You were still asleep, dreaming
of cheap beer and women.

It rushes into the ceramic mug,
a souvenir from the business trip
with your new assistant.
A dollop of whipped cream,
a few mini marshmallows.
Perfect.
I made it just for you.
I hope you burn your mouth.
