it’s July in Florida and as i walk outside,
a mere 20 feet to my vehicle,
i’m steeping in my own sweat,
preparing for earth’s sip of human tea.
one of my colleagues is mint tea,
my roommate is chamomile tea,
my black friend is black tea (obvs),
i’m the crack cocaine opiate cannabis tea (again, obvs).
the faucets in Florida during summer are
either H (hell) or H (hot),
so the tea is all hot as well.
Oh, Florida, if only tea bagging
could cure all of your issues…
