Sweetest Tea

Sweetest Tea                                                    June 17, 2011

You watch intently

As I pour the sugar into the pitcher,

Your golden-ember eyes full of languid anticipation,

Licking your lips as though enticing a lover-

The water’s red-hot temp melting the solid sweet,

As I stir, round and round, a sensual witch’s brew-

I add the teabags, one by one by one, their soft pillowed

Flavor swirling their smoky colors into my concoction

Of your temptation-

You ask hour after hour if it’s ready yet, impatient for the

Kiss of the Sweetest Tea-
