savored by lips
intimate with tepid
indifferent to scalds and scolds
utensils
appreciated occasionally
for beauty
form
function
found out in a small cupboard
survivors of rough treatment
tea cups
forged by itinerant alchemists
tinkering with fire, bone and ash
clumsy hands
and unexpected emotions
have killed others
vessels filled with temptation
and a new leaf.
