Abstinence from teaThose patrons of my time, they dissipate
Like so much steam from a cup of tea. Dissolve,
Like sugar in a cup of tea; now that
Is the heart of it, if we dare to delve.
A perfect cup of tea is diamond clear;
So were they, but then the world became complex,
Or maybe this youth became less cavalier
Thought more about, say, diamonds, less of, say, sex;
He took to abstinence. Already he took
His tea without sugar. He liked it hot
And red and cloudless: five minutes on the clock.
Now tea would be a conceptunlike the pot,
Of plain white porcelain you can see through, set
Upon a shelf, kept dry, but seeming wet.
To a brilliant authorTo a brilliant author who begged the question
They are the masters of symbolic art,
Those who can understand a human brain,
But, in a misdeed of the very smart,
They blame the stupid for the smarts’ disdain.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
