Miss Aimee B, Felicia Olin
Cream Tea at Miss Aimee B’s

Before there was tea there were teats,
The milk of human kindness flowing
Without silver tongs or lumps
Of sugar, breasts dispensing life.
We smile over our cups,
Ladies who lunch, the tearoom
Cozy, the cheesecake sweet,
And Earl Gray the only male.
