tea with me

I thought last night
that I would like
to have morning tea with you.
A man said those words,
and I melted
like the carmel for an apple,
butter for flap jacks,
chocolate on a summer sidewalk.
I don't need immortal praise,
slaying of dragons
is strictly optional.
But a man who wants
to smile at me
over morning tea?
That is a pearl beyond price.
That is a pleasure sublime.
That is something to hug to yourself---
though I'd rather be hugging you
pass the sweet rolls, sweet man.
