Wozu Dichter?

Heidegger's A.M.

by Les Gottesman

Coffee breaks
the chain
of neglect
of the problem of being.

Coffee grounds
the problem in ancient inquiries
concerning being not being beings.

Before coffee
what is not sought
is not unfamiliar
though ungraspable, hot,

but after the first shot
everyone understands
"The sky is blue," "I am happy,"
statements like that.
A white ring marks a dark table.

The problem, the mug
being unmistakable.

Hat tip: Aphelis.
