Book Synopsis

Having Garden Tea with Raffles is a free poetry book containing a small collection of prose on a variety of life subjects.


Afterwards, I felt like a thief
Stealing the young moments of your life,
Bridging the barriers of language then
Filling your head with fantastical lies
Of deeds by someone else,
The black mask I wore I had
Worn before.
And not so long ago.
We drank Saki in small ceramic cups
I had you several times that night
I drank ice tea from the fridge as you slept
And crept out
Like Raffles into the early dawn.


You spin around the icy silver pole
As if trapped in a blender
Topless, unafraid, center-stage
Rays of colored-lights on twinkling skin
