got up from the bed
took a dump
wore my shorts and my t-shirt
drove out to the tea stall at the corner
parked my bike, sat there on a plastic chair
kept sitting while the old woman ruffled through
the fresh stock of cookies and candies and whatever
kept sitting and watching
'What do you want?' she asked
she had to ask
What do I want?
an interesting question, but how will I know
'A cup of tea' I told her
and while she walked inside to cook tea,
I got up at once and drove back
to my home.
