Beans On Toast – Nadeem Raj – kalArt English Poetry


I make myself coffee and beans on toast on a Sunday evening You say you don’t like rain The kitchen window is teary-eyed The wailing of drops as loud as your absence The fridge as empty as the bedroom Devoid Of flavour and freshness You are time zones away So far that the rain can’t touch you The coffee is poor comfort The beans near expiry The sun will be on holiday for months I used to be able to like the rain when indoors Now I want to be sun kissed The phone rings The rain lessens for a while
