    I’d start with “and you’re so vain..” but I don’t want that taken the wrong way! :) This is lovely!

    from CarlySimon.com:
    Can you tell me what the meaning of the phrase “clouds in my coffee” has in the context of your song “You’re So Vain”? I can’t quite pin down the metaphor. What are the “clouds” in your coffee? Samantha – Dearborn, MI

    “Clouds in my coffee” are the confusing aspects of life and love. That which you can’t see through, and yet seems alluring…until. Like a mirage that turns into a dry patch. Perhaps there is something in the bottom of the coffee cup that you could read if you could (like tea leaves or coffee grinds). Carly Simon 5/17/01

    Jacki — Thanks for the explanation! 8)

    Thanks, all! And thanks for the excerpt from Ms. Simon, Jacki.

    This Pick is just gorgeous, Toad! The phrase ‘clouds in my coffee’ has always reminded me of when I was a little girl and my grandmother let me add the milk to her coffee ‘just until it starts to rise’. The swirls of milk reminded me of clouds.

  24. Atomic Toad
    Atomic Toad says:

    Yes, and “clouds” sounds more poetic and mysterious than “milk in my coffee.” Thanks for the sweet comment, Mouse.
