whiteware dishes are the sign of resignation

Posted to Poetry




Fiesta is the choice
of young couples,
occasionally Harlequin;
Pfalzgraff, if you can afford the set
but never whiteware.
It's what couples,
settling into suburbia choose.
But whiteware says,
I'm stable,
employed,
and like
being practical.

I prefer ironstone,
for the fact
it heats up,
in the microwave.
