Waiting for the Hot Water

Haworth Hodgkinson

 

A host of little packages
sitting, waiting, ever waiting
as one by one they are drowned,
infused and consumed;
sitting, waiting, ever waiting
for the all too infrequent knock at the door
and asking each other:

Who shall be the honoured choice
of a guest?
