Mad as a Hatter – Happy Easter!

When I recently had eye surgery
I needed to take oral steroids for
two weeks prior to the operation.
Apparently they affect people in
different weird and wonderful ways! 

Mad as a Hatter

Two o’clock in the morning,
wide awake
craving computer;
I have sale fever,
Add to basket – click!

Enticingly essential,
the teapot for one
dotted with bright
promises of Spring,
sits, incongruous
upon its stoical cup,
from which could
only be taken
delicate sips of
sheer elegance.

I begin to ponder
the wisdom of this
when the tiny
porcelain snail
perched on top
of the lid looks up
at me, winks,  and
gives me his blessing.
