Tennessee supermarket

Pleasure at the young man's interest in my Englishness,
his telling me of relatives in Grantham
(I didn't tell him what a dump I found it)
was more than a little dissipated when I discovered, on reaching where we stayed,
that he'd rammed the sharp-cornered cereal packet
into the foil lid of the Greek yoghurt,
and sliced it in half.
