“Tea Set” by Tamra Carraher

the sun makes a fire
on your face but god
it makes your eyes look
pretty. can i fix it
for you sweetie?

but really your face is so
beautiful with the sun
on fire in your pretty face.

i’ll fix the tea while you
sit there, the sun afire
on your pretty face

and making shadow puppets
of the plants on the sill—
