These Are A Few of Our Favorite Things

One day, before she moved across the country, she gifted me with several items of each. She expressed dismay over the array of mismatching colors and the slight imperfections in form.  "Are you kidding?!" I said. "They're absolutely perfect." I use them every single day, for every meal I make at home. When I reach for them in the cupboard, I think of her, guiding the clay into a shape, painting the glaze, passing it onto the kiln, uncertain...
