I chopped down the house that you had been saving to live in next summer.
I am sorry, but it was morning, and I had nothing to do
and its wooden beams were so inviting.
We laughed at the hollyhocks together
and then I sprayed them with lye.
Forgive me. I simply do not know what I am doing.
I gave away the money that you had been saving to live on for the
next ten years.
The man who asked for it was shabby
and the firm March wind on the porch was so juicy and cold.
Last evening we went dancing and I broke your leg.
Forgive me. I was clumsy and
I wanted you here in the wards, where I am the doctor!

Poor photo, but a beautiful sterling silver container by Virginia Gordon a San Diego artisan being sold at Persimmon a great shop off Beverly Blvd at Flores St in Los Angeles. I have my own little obsession with silver boxes. This week I found, the book, “Silver Boxes“, by Eric Delieb, 1968 where he explains:
“This book is based, in the main, upon a thesis of my own
development, namely, that any receptacle which has a lid, attached or not, and
which was intended to accommodate articles other than victuals (which would make
it a ‘vessel’) may be grouped under the general heading of ‘box’.
