the way I see it:

July 8, 2010

An espresso shot has ten seconds or less to live.
So, technically speaking, those orderers of espresso drinks are paying for leche con carcasses of the coffee bean, ground in to split second decisions, life or death matters.
A doppio is nothing more than a dual graveyard, too cheap to purchase twice the plots, two bodies comingle as one in a demitasse, slowly sipped, a supple enjoyment of death.
I see universes in this, settled in layers at the bottoms of espresso glasses, the beveled floors of the shot glass stained with a ten second life- aborted fetus of caffeine.
