tea time

the tile floor is ever hungry
for delicious glassware
tea kettle screams
“the world inside is wet”
a tea ball full of assam sits patiently
poised to soak up indifference
has time been speeding up?
the oak tree in the backyard
now casts a wider shadow
too many teacups drained
of their sweet summer days
metal spoon clinks purple flowers
another record on the turntable
raindrops fall in the kitchen
wishing they had children
crunching toasted almonds
