Poem – A Cup of Tea – John Tansey

My brains chemicals 
affords a few moments from my mood 

to rinse out a dirty pot 

pour some cold water 

from a spout 

and turning to the stove, 

light a low flame 

find a tin cup 

two tea bags, honey and some cream 
and I wait… 
Water sizzling around the rim, 

I pull a sleeve over my hand 

lift the hot handle 

warm water pours in the cup 

and dipping the tea bags up and down 

stir them around 

and let it steep 
again, I wait…
