Zeugma wave

Ever since I heard the word, I’ve longed
to use zeugma in my poetry
or in a sentence, somehow
hearing it in rusty and broken German
in my head as “tsoygmah”; I found
the truth and my way to “zoog-mah”
with my heart and a sip of coffee
in my mouth, my big chance,
but taking myself in hand, I waived it.
