Joe’s cup

Years ago a friend expressed
Wanting to meet a romantic partner
Out of relationship for a while
Ready to open up, with a smile

A week later I showed up
At her house
With « Joe’s cup »
And simple instructions

Put it on the table
Take it out for coffee or tea
Have a set of 2 in whatever you do

Doubtfully, then playfully
She made space for the cup
In the house and
Her heart too

Months later
She met Joseph
That’s a story
I couldn’t even invent
