6TH HOUR SANCTUARY
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.
