Marriage, p. 33
Marriage 33 Before we were married I always had a poached egg on rye toast for breakfast But since my husband didn't like rye toast And didn't want to eat the same thing every day I would make white toast, and scramble or fry... But I still liked eggs my way So every once in a while jaw set, lips clenched I made rye toast for us both And one day Only 52 years later — my husband looked at me And said, "You know, rye toast and poached eggs Are quite good."
