it – a fistful of raisins can
easily become

two, half a cup can turn into
a full cup – it’s not magic

the first step towards

blustery evening,

here is the ceremony

here is the ceremony
of you, showing
up, bearing only
memories. here is
the ceremony of
us, sharing the
procedure
for
steeping the perfect
cup of tea over
a makeshift
conversation,
observing the
caesura that suddenly
appeared in our hearts

even a blur

even a blur
pauses for someone
to take notice,
leans into
the moment
,
flexes its muscles,
empties its cup
of light

cup of coffee
warming your

hardly like a hairline
in a porcelain cup, a good
crack in the tub lends
character while never
preventing a bath
from safely absorbing
these astringent days.
a patiently drawn
bath, with
its captivating crack,
always waits for
the soft reveal.
and like cured
bodies, we unwrap
ourselves differently,
with some requiring
more infusions to restore
