(14/30) Teacup

The prompt for day fourteen over at NaPoWriMo: write an imaginary dream dictionary entry for one or more of the following words:
Teacup, Hammer, Seagull, Ballet slipper, Shark, Wobbly table, Dentist, Rowboat

Teacup: /ˈtēˌkəp/ noun


To dream of a tea cup
is to have a nightmare
about the sunken place;


slave lullabies drowning
in blood from the middle 

passage, chains and cotton
scented with Earl Grey.

You may wake up
with the after taste
of southern plantation
on your tongue;

stay calm,

wipe the sweat
from your mind
and read
Wretched Of The Earth.
