Taxes and Tea

Spreadsheets while the kettle boils

Steeped in numbers and hot water

An accounting fraught with fragrance

Bagged and tagged

We are stirred and stirring

I on my bench

My tea on the saucer

Reading the fine print

“Choose joy daily”

“Attach sch B if required”

The pencil needs to be sharpened

The ink needs to be refilled

The bank has sent me papers again

The tea is almost gone

How to calculate the number of cups

To finish this

To savor this

Fiscal numeration

The kettle boils again

Steaming we are in sync

Maybe just one more pour

This interlude stopped

A moment

We resume suddenly

Into motion

Restarting where we left off

After paying our dues
