The second one is genuinely good, I think. I know that feeling too, when suffering (of one sort or another, including work) kills desire.
Oh, I like #1. So sorry, Greta. I hope, at least, that it's very good coffee there in #4.
I love number IIIts nostalgia is touchingMy heart's cold places
II is a classic, and makes me hope that spring isn't too far away, in your clime or in mine (at least the sun is getting noticeably stronger here, though the temperatures are still bouncing all over the place, and landing in the low digits more often than not). And III captures all too well the effect our students (who have their own travails) can have on us. I hope the coffee, however, deceptive, sees you through for the moment, and that spring (and perhaps some more validating encounters) is on its way.
Love these...if we could get you and Sam to publish a two-ended book, then we'd have something.
