Ah, caffeine: Awake, my soul, and sing!

On the back of a flier promoting the Lafayette High School Russian Educ/Cultural Exchange, March/April 1993, I found the following sets of scribbles, no doubt the brainchildren of a pre-writing exercise I practiced with a writing class. Context, I recall not, but somehow, the subject was coffee. I share them as artifacts of imagination, not sure today as I was not sure then which (if any) are/were suitable for publication.
