Everyday Dishes

 Everyday Dishes

Everyday dishes

venous here and there chips

drabbled by much machine washing

but sturdy still

familiar to her fingers

Secondhand dishes

unabashed so many before had

sopped yolks swabbed menorrheal

jus of beef

thick coffee in thick mugs

New dishes

occasionally catch her eye and

newly acquired kept aside set solely

for delicate occasions

hand wash only of course
