Say When


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

peppermint leaves
picked
++++shred
+++++++spread
 

crunch-crackle dried
boiled
++++heaped
++++++++steeped
 

strained, scented balm
filtered
++++fresh
+++++++zest
 

steaming fluid
infused
++++poured
++++++++sluiced
 

scalding liquor
spattered
+++++spewed
+++++++++splashed
 

saucerless cup
cascades
+++++sears
++++++++tears
 

when
 

when!
 

for fuck’s sake
when!
