Scott Edward Cole: Music

Ceylon

(Cole)
Your kettle that
whistles, brings me
to a rapid boil--

It does, it does,
it has me steaming...

Teas in cans--
you are practicing
witchcraft, and you
are steeping me--
I’m warming up,
you fill my cup...

And you say,
you know what I need--
a little sweetness,
and some cream.

A little sweetness,
and some cream.

It does, it does,
it has me dreaming.

Opening tins
of madeleines,
you read my fortune
in these leaves--

You say I’ll never
stand a chance
I’ll fall victim
to romance...

And you say
you know what I need,
a little sweetness
and some cream.

A little sweetness,
and some cream.
