they bought me myrtle candles 

with rough wicks in translucent holders 

a grey, bass booster speaker 

with pixelated holes packed in cylinder rubber 

white tea in unbleached, pyramid bags 

with rose speckles peeping through the mesh 

hand-dotted mugs made in Japan 

or Australia, or whichever sounds authentic 

Triple crème brie in parchment paper 

with salt crystals over olive oil twists 

hand cream bottled in opaque glass 

with essence of lavender, myrrh and lemon oils.
