Lilt

November 21, 2012

Sweeter than the precious tiny

Melodic Asian lilt,

That  child-waitress,

Specific  question  still

Asked periodically at our table,

(she has

 cool bangs & hornrimmed glasses)

&   ”Hot tea?”

She surely should be in school

But she’s all the family business has

To talk to the customers

In their native language.

“Hot  tea?”  Forever memorable.

Sweeter than that

When you  thankfully  then

Lean closer again

In yr. achingly fetching

Nightgown

(yr. bangs  cooler)

I watch yr. lips  & hear

“Tea,  Dear?”

.

                                                   All my thanx to sunni for forever encouraging me to dream
