Tea and Toast with Honey (in A♭)

Tail-end of October, scat rain on skylight glass,

the loosest jazz all afternoon. Too soon the window darkens.

Perhaps, in Friedrichshain (between the wars), I wonder,

or Whitley Bay, for one more season, a matinée

plays for someone taking tea and toast with honey.

The street lights come on one by one, a standing ovation,

and all over town an applause of cups and saucers;

sweet spoon song sings in wooden rooms…

I wonder,

are you in this playhouse, too,

taking tea and toast with honey?
