Liquid Times

by Emilija Veljković
(Belgrade, Serbia)

I like my coffee bitter,
To best suit my
Charming personality.

I like my liquor strong,
Just like how I often
Pretend to be.

I like my water cold as ice,
Just like my heart grew to be
Over the years.

I like my chocolate sweet,
The only silver lining there is
In these liquid times.

Emilija Veljković is a young woman who writes poetry for fun and in order to organize her thoughts. Some of her poems have been published in magazines such as The New England Monthly Poetry Digest, Poetic Reveries, and as a part of the Sweetycat Press anthology.
