The Tuck Box

April 14, 2013


Every time we visit
Carmel By The Sea
This is where my wife
Likes to order tea
And a scone

She carefully stirs
Cream and sugar-free
Sweetener into her tea

With the panache
Of an alchemist

The practiced skill
Of a brain surgeon

And the exacting care of
A master diamond cutter

And then she closes
Her eyes, sips blissfully
And pretends she’s in
Her beloved England

I sit and enjoy
Watching her
Enjoy herself
