Tea & You

i swear to god,
or to the tree spirits or
someone’s else’s ancestors that
one day i will be that girl
with the six-inch heels and dripping umbrella
standing in the times square of tokyo,
watching millions of souls and
black-haired, rosy-cheeked
japanese mothers and fathers and babies
and the ever-adorable gothic lolitas and
the obsessive otakus
pass me by
and i will look up at those lights,
and i will be in the center
of the world and the apple of
your eye,
and when your sanguine smile
heads my way and when
the cherry blossom petals
begin to fall
around us,
i’ll answer your persistent
question and
yes, i
would love a cup of tea
