you, me, and tea

after the

tea steeps

let’s pour it,

steaming, into

travel mugs to

drive south

away from

bitter winter

over steeps

across desert

through cities

onto island

where sun

smiles for

sandy miles

where we

hide from

hazy sea-spray

 

between

 

steep dunes,

sipping tea

    Considering how cold it is supposed to get it might be worth driving south for a few days.
