soap dish

remember the soap dish
the engravings read, ‘lover’s paradise’
we thought it was funny
but you bought it anyways
the clay that shattered as it hit the ground
hammered to bits
like treasure you gathered it all
and reassured me it would be patched together
chipped and all
and you’d love it all the same
