Domestic Ware

from the Whangamata market
unearthed moulded saucers
washed up will reveal plum garlands

his mother frowned what
do you want with those
and turns to drink in
the complete set of her
married daughter
in a white sunfrock and rich
terracotta skin
waiting with the car keys
‘come on mum’

now they're both gone
