Drinking Tea Without Caution

you stir both our teas silently before you set mine down on the coffee table  
“drink it cautiously, it’s very hot.”

you’ll say

sitting down next to me 

only a centimeters distance between our thighs

but your eyes stay glued to the milk in your tea that swirls down to the bottom of the glass

because when you look at me you fall in love all over again

but you’d much rather pretend to love her

so i peel my eyes away from you and i drink mine without caution

because you were never careful with me
