green tea

i only really like tea
(green, and the colour of sunset)
on the second brew,

leaves a little jaded-
that can afford to look
at the funnier side of things;
water a little cooled-off:
politically neither hot nor cold,
just appropriately steaming;
the faint taste of bitter
filling the mouth
with vague happy memories
of deepthi’s chocolate;

i only really like tea
on the second brew.
