Java Part II

Java Part II

Ancient Javanese cosmology
reveals that the thousands
of islands comprising Indonesia
were formed sometime between
the second and third day
of creation while God was
having a coffee break.
A fragment of the donut
He was nibbling on fell
into his cappuccino
scattering drops all over
the tablecloth which
dried to become the
Indonesian archipelago.
He then divinely decreed
that the inhabitants therein
would forever be blessed
with skin the charming colors
of coffee – from espresso
to latte.
