Baby Dishes

by Rebecca Harris


pin prick of winter rain

rounds the corners of each windowpane


gone each workday morning

he surprises her and returns every evening


and she will clean them now and again

bottles and spoons palmed tenderly, one by one

she finds them there in the bottom cabinet

making no nonsense of her baby wishes


every color, every embellishment

a rainbow swept out and away

the tiny dish with the soft suction

the big tray for all those fingered joys

the slotted valve on the tippy cup

all customized for a pint-sized person

a generation that would not be


she thinks no one knows of her tender afternoons

her affected affirmations


but the riot of plastic and melamine stands out

and the sleet saw it all
