Atalhos de Campo



This tea, this cup of tea, made of leaves,
made of the leaves of herbs and absolute

almond blossom, this tea, is interpreter
of almond, liquid touchstone which lets us
scent its true taste at last and with a bump,

in my case, takes me back to de yellow time
of trouble with blood testes, and cellular
madness, and my presence required

on the slab for surgery, and all that mess
I don't want to comb through here because
it seems, honestly, a trifle now that steam

and scent and strength and steep and infusion
say thank you that you thank you for then, and now

Jo Shapcott/ Of Mutability
