It's odd, indeed, when you meet a cockroach and spill coffee beans on the same morning. Why do coffee beans, one of the most exquisite foods on the planet, at first glance, look like roaches? I met the cockroach first. Then, I spilled the coffee beans. And in case you were wondering, I did jump—at the roach and the beans. 

As glossy French roast 

Spills across speckled granite,

Cockroaches scatter.
