On a deep taupe, the chief rabbi of Otaniemi
wrote angry words to god complaining about Odd Nerdrum
if only there were extra vowels in his name
I would withdraw
But hey, he wrote back,
I got you some Oolong leaves
2-3 minutes, 85-90 C
need not wait
there is little taste in the first sip
change the font
God, Ethiopian,...
his wife had an affair
plans to grow tea

Incapable of dying for love of a gelding
may secretly steal
from an oral history which had hitherto 
belonged to them
furnish our rabbi's grief
with more cups
