Down to a tea

To my exes and estranged,
yet to budge from a grudge –
to those who are absent
to those who resent,
to those who are distant with distaste:
I would like to invite you to tea
forty years from now
when we are old,
wrinkled and wringed out by the world
by those things that separated us:
money, lust, power,
status, ambition, a lover.
Let us sit down to tea
and put it all behind us
because forty years later,
it is all behind us.
sit, sip, start again
from when our moments were simple and sweet,
like the people we chose to become.
