The dish and the spoon have absconded from my pantry
One can only assume it was an orchestrated occurrence.
An elopement is a novelty in this day and age,
Unfettered love set free into the big wide world
To skin its knees and learn the hard way
With no care for the matching crockery and stiff upper lips
That come with a white wedding and exorbitant make up bills.
A bone china complexion needs no adulteration
To be exalted in.
I’ll make do with a fork tonight to eat my tea.
