Charms & Demitasse Spoons – A Poem

Charms & Demitasse Spoons

Sometimes we choose
to remember
or to remember not.

She watched her childhood
charms and
demitasse spoons
float away.

It’s ok.
I’ll create new charms
and wear them
I’ll use unmatched spoons
with only a single
Key West demitasse.

We ate mile high
key lime pie
not knowing
that beautiful sunset
was us.

I want to remember
that day my heart was broken.

  1. There is a softness to the last three poems I’ve read, including this one. I like the hushed sounds the combination of words make. ❤
