“Platters and Patterns” by MC Lubow

Dancing to the Platters, break dancin’

No pitter patter, no pity for me, no thank you

No matter, no familiar patterns…now

Drum roll, if you please…

I have a full plate, I resonate

I pack a day, come what may,

Jivin’ to the moment

Even the Washington Monument quaked, cracked

but remains intact.

I’ve got the dishes

No longer a plain Jane dishcloth

No longer a washup

No longer his right hand

Do I wish to be a Mrs…..

again, again and again?
