T1 Hot Tea Tall to burn my tongue and leave my teeth feeling stale,
the vegetal flavor of green tea
stewing with leftover breakfast sausages and the pomegranate honey of your chapstick.
T1 Iced Tea Venti Tall to soothe my nerves
and stop these hands from twitching as I use them to wrap my scarf around your shoulders,
gingerly and nervously as an autumn wind picks up
and the condensation drips to the sidewalk below us.

"People believe that if we really want to eliminate something, focus on that. How much sense does it make for us to give the particular problem all of the energy, as opposed to focusing on trust, love, living in abundance, education, or peace? -Un.

Wow this is great. It makes me feel... lonley and empty. Hmmm. Definatly a poem that will lead to a lot of discussion. Great job.

It's aw' like, ken, aboot the futility o' the nouveau-riche in thar self-assertion o' position in the social hierarchy in the face an' aw' o' the post-modern globalised economy an' such an' the slow transformation o' a bourgeois status-quo inate a kind o' proletariat in an o' themselves, ken? It's like that movie, ken... Tomb Raider or sommit, I dinnay ken, whar the imposition of imperialism encroaches upon the rights o' the individual an' Angelina Jolie wears those ridiculous shorts an' aw'. Like that, ken?
