our increasingly
reckless behaviour
like a carelessly lit match
is rooted in guilt
residual doubt
gnawing at us
harassing us
in minuted hours
of stultifying routine
then long restless nights
begun with that ‘big bang’
while aside
& imprecisely
we only seek to measure effect
as wanton schoolboys
who watch a paddock burn
        something must have ignited it

Chai Latte

2 cups almond milk (or milk of choice)
2 black tea bags
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3 tablespoons maple syrup
Heat up the almond milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it begins to bubble around the edges of the pan.
Turn off the heat and add the 2 tea bags to the pot of hot milk.
Wait 3 to 5 minutes for the tea to steep, then remove the bags.
Add the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and maple syrup.
Whisk to combine, stirring over medium heat, until the mixture is piping hot.
Adjust any seasoning to your taste and serve immediately.
Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. Serve chilled over ice or reheat on the stove.
