Cynicism is the often preferred company
we sip in our green teas together
in wind-kissed verandahs
not wanting to put on weight

There is never any conversation.

Stray birds twitter around
but there is an invisible wall
and so we hear nothing 
but the deafening silence 
with the strange bitter undertones 
of tea and words unsaid
