THE REAL NAME OF THE A & P

was: “The Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company.”
When I read its name I wanted to drink tea.
And so I started drinking tea. And then I moved
to the South and started drinking sweet tea.
And then I peed blood and the doctor said:
“You’ve got kidney stones and you have to 
stop drinking sweet tea.” And so I married 
a girl named Bethy. I think of Bethy now, 
her face covered with funnel cake, her lips 
so tender, underneath a summer moon 

was Bethy, her neck so white and soft.
