not exactly butterbeer

coffeeshopgirl has an... interesting taste in beverages. this post is an ode to her experiments. the first version seemed to fall flat at the end so i wrote a second version. still not quite putrid enough, but it's a start. this may look like iced coffee but i'm here to tell you it was nothing of the sort.

she brews base concoctions by day
with sour cream and bits of clay
people pay to drink
what makes their vessels shrink
and she pockets their tips to play


she once devised a rancid brew
that smelled of moldy cheese and glue,
the color of juice
tasting oddly of spruce,
it made for an unsightly spew
