two half-empty cups of herbal tea
one bowl, embroidered with melted & dreid ice cream
two cups, on their bottom coffee grounds
two plates, holding croissant crumbs
two knives, sticky with plum & rhubarb jam
one glass of water, shared
two glasses of juice, one half full.
two plates with sticky stains of maple syrup
an ashtray holding 5 cigarette butts,
two of them stained with CBD weed
two empty tea glasses
one tea can, yellow ginger chunks,
sticking to the inside of the glass.
an oil-stained table top glimmering in
the autumnal morning sun
chopped spring onions
two plates, bread crumbs
coffee grounds, one mug blue, one mug brown
two glasses, mango juice dampening their rims.
