Making Tea for Amanda Knox

You stand five foot four
or in America,
one metre sixty-three.
Today Amanda Knox,
I am making you tea.
Your hair is combed back,
blue sweat, eyes grey,
reading the West Seattle Herald,
about a play within a play.
And if I could see past the newsprint,
or if there was a media lull,
it could be said,
that you are beautiful.
