March – May 2016

they say here
a cup of tea is good for everything
what is everything? I am raising my voice
inside tea lovers’ throats
their constant celebration
occurs not because they are happy
they fear unbearable reality will creep at night
sew up misery tears
together with eyelids

a cup of tea with eyes closed
is vile
one would say we deserve better
like we didn’t know
from the moment we were born
– that was before war
but war is after war

you say a cup of tea?
I take it black
just like everything else
from the comfiness of my sofa
I tend to listen to a loud sadness
exploding in the neighborhood (22nd March 2016)
