I thought I would make
tea for her but she was sleeping
I didn’t wake up
our back faced each other
once again cold birthday

In Coming.

My druthers would be you
Coming through the door
Soaking wet
In that fabulous old trench
Brimming over with stories
For our tea.

Tea Kettle

her tea kettle
no longer whistles..
she looks in the

and puts on lipstick…

Lights

Quiet lights
are in windows at night,
lamps lit for intimate activities–
tea drinking, book reading–
a glowing comfort to me

Roots

wrapped in our kitchen
dad and I sat
old blues, tea and a ciggie
it was before pc,
debating roots of soul,
dad faded out.
