Tea on a Sunday

Tea on a Sunday 

evening

Two young girls 

hide behind their words

their illustrations

small talk eludes

dark realities

too afraid to address

the monster

in the closet

a bad dad

mysterious excuses

questions learing

concerns hinted

hints ignored

She drinks her tea

draws her picture

brushes off the concern

she drinks her tea

writes her poem

hides another burn

Who needs reality?

They just need

Tea

on a sunday evening.
