Baby Spoon

mother digs out my spoon
from the baby
years,

never knew she kept
records
too,

only mine rust
in shade
of..

basement
box,

hers rest spotless
within reach

in squeaky kitchen
drawer, where

they may be seen,
touched and
reused..

exhumed from the
archives

handy, in times we
need our past
revived.
