Cup of Tea, Cup of Coffee
Eighteen years earlier across the pond, a cup of hot Earl Grey tea. Hot bitter-sweetness spreads out from the first sip. Daylight fills the living room through cream curtains. The hum of morning traffic arises from a busy Wigmore Street.
Today, at home, a cup of hot Columbian coffee. Hot bitterness explodes from the first sip. Daylight illuminates the dining room table through a veil of translucent drapes. The wind-chime sings in the morning breeze.
