Cold Tea Blues
(Michael Timmins )

If I pour your cup
that is friendship.
If I add your milk
that is manners.
If I stop there,
claiming ignorance of taste,
that is tea.

If I pour your cup
that is friendship.
If I add your milk
that is manners.
If I stop there,
claiming ignorance of taste,
that is tea.

But if I measure the sugar
to satisfy your expectant tongue
then that is love,
But if I measure the sugar
to satisfy your expectant tongue
then that is love,
sitting untouched and growing cold.
