i wanted to hold time.
which is not possible,
i know.
to still it all.
just this moment;
a gray morning and tepid tea.
to leave my thoughts aside.
watch for light that
never arrives
and lick delicious tea
from my lips.
i don’t wish to hold time
for any other reason;
no particular moment
i’d return to
or event i’d relive.
no, just still it enough
so day never arrives
and my tea never
gets too cold.
