    False Friend

    Promises promises!
    You waffle on about
    how I owe you
    but I think you slipped the word
    into my latte like sugar,
    with your own stained teaspoon.
    Stirring in another obligation to you
    through coffee you paid for,
    each time we walked
    down cappuccino strip.

    I like the caffeination metaphor - and not at all frothy!

    The word choices in this one are apt-- "waffle" and "latte," "sugar" which contrast with the saccharine aspects of the so-called "friendship." Obviously the speaker ought to get a friend who'll spring for coffee (or something stronger) without keeping track.
