the spice of life

 soothing sores and aches,
a bath to soak in, drain away the pain
  teacup sat beside the clawed foot
         “peppermint and a special blend”
       she smiled as the mistress sipped in the suds
   bowed low when she wished to be alone

         she returned three hours later
      water soaked floor and bubbles not to be found
              the smashed china littering the floor
         and a single bay leaf on her chest.
