Wedding Ring

And there, amidst the houseplants,

The clipped and neatened leaves,

Variegated velvet:

The lifebuoy soap and rubber gloves,

Shirts hanging off chairs,

Half-ready, humble:

There, beside the cutting board,

A squared-away, box-shaped tower

Of wayward, wayfaring CDs:

The tell-tale glitter of a smartened sink

And an airiness that heralds

A refreshed (for now) and brightened kitchen;

There, among the items of measure

The wedding ring sits patiently,

Awaiting rescue.
