Tea Party (day 196)

Not another tea party,

tight smiles and sharp corners,

loneliness posing like closing doors on old friends

 

I’ll bring the champagne if it makes people talk

or when I want them to talk I’ll tear off the tablecloth

 

Day after day

they crawl to my gates

Not another apology,

I want you to detonate

not switch on with a purpose

 

The wind can tell you what I mean

Passing all the minefields,

stuck in a heartbeat,

drowned in silence

 

I don’t want another tea party,

tight smiles and sharp corners,

politely posing all my commands as a question

 

Please just walk in and

break all the china.
