Make for each? A name, A face, a scent, a flower- Filled field on a perfect Day, the moment of tragedy knowing, looking
Down, (always down, then,) or looking Straight and up, (always straight and up - When a then carries a belief,) A background, a time unmoving, a
Movement, an alternative, a feeling, A fear, a safeness?
Am I this teapot, topped With a dragon, tail curled, and A living flower tattooed in Yellow-green pigment on my body?
Am I an implication, only: The space of a teapot, A space needed, in A time needed, with A movement - A sideways moving, discretely, inside – so like A thing among other things, defined.
We make a warm drink together, You and I, In society, Blending the flavors of Dried things that don’t become, Not yet, until You no longer need the space I hold, And I no longer need You to create the teapot I am, yet with you, in Society, we remain – dragon, tea, and all.
December – home for the holidays

(Beautiful Set of colors: Oil, Rembrandt,) That, (a teapot, eighteen Hundreds, Belgian) Belgian,) who Gabby is, (my Beautiful Sister,) and John,
(Always, of Course, my John,) and hurry Through the line - I’m meeting her For tea and Scones, blueberry, at The Starbucks Near the exit:
They’ve come for A stay – Gabby Makes me think of Cinnamon, Vanilla and Fresh nutmeg. Her nearness, so
Close – sometimes It can be Cold in the House with the two of Us alone, John and I, But not now, not Today or Tomorrow or – I should text her, I’m running late, a Little. Whew,
She knows, always She knows, her Beauty is that Quietness, Finding warmth Through judgeless lips That remind Us we belong. I so like To feel her smile.
2. christmas tea, gabby This is not a my place, this sort, A filtered music for this part of town, Chosen in a room of men and one or two Too tight women in too tight suits in too Tight heals that tend to follow Rules tightly within tight days
