California kitchen

Sugar cubes
in round ceramic dish
—pinkish w/dark green leaves
domed lid on top
cherry red ball its handle

In the kitchen
the Hatter must be near
Triangular people drink tea—
    talk of Alice suggestively
passing the dish
from one
to the next

Outside the sunshine
enters the inside—
the chatter changing
of going Underground
—not to mention
all the Things
they’ll be taking with them
    here & beyond

december two thousand twenty-two
