2020-11-17 – Baby Spoon

mother flashes me
my spoon from
the baby
years,

i never knew
she was keeping
records
too,

only mine are
stashed in
laundry
nook..

of unfinished
basement,

as hers rest
spotless..

in country kitchen
drawer, where..

she can still see,
touch, reuse
them-

still handy,
for..

times we choose
to share in
them.
