Poem 91 Revised

My lover drinks tea in the evening,
Because it calms him. Because its simple
Because it’s made of the earth and he feels empty of the dirt
Sometimes when he’s been reading up on politics and pain.
Because he’s made of the earth and he remembers
A motherland; a lifetime from here.
My lover drinks tea in the evening because he’s not native,
He’s not bitter about Boston and what we dumped in the bay.
He drinks tea, biting and oversteeped, like the desert
Night lit clouds implying a sandstorm of stars.
My lover drinks tea in the evening and I wonder why it is
Two people can put water to dust and not call it magic.
He’s merely my lover,
It’s just tea

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue
    or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Cheers

  2. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform? I'm new
    to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and set up
    my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  3. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It's on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout
    and design. Excellent choice of colors!
