Stanzas: Monthly Chapbooks February 2015: Anti-Love - Page 10

Moth Fiona Grimes As you fester and boil The love grows. Brewing, growing stronger With every passing second. There are times when we don’t agree, Times when you’re too hot And I wait for you to cool Or times when I forget about you And you grow cold and bitter So I drain you. Know that I will never turn truly away from you Coffee can piss off No matter how bitter or cold you get, I can always reboil the kettle and wait, Quite simply, Tea, you are my moth And I am your flame. 10
