here is the ceremony

here is the ceremony
of you, showing
up, bearing only

us, sharing the

steeping the perfect
cup of tea over
a makeshift
conversation,
observing the
caesura that suddenly
appeared in our hearts

at grandfather’s house

at grandfather’s house,
tea flowed into the contours
of conversation –

inspiring the palate, unfurling
each tightly held message
