you had these white plates i never knew how one could keep plates that pristine like they had been dipped in bleach before and after every use
we used to eat off of those plates those beautiful ivory discs it was always spaghetti that we enjoyed together at least once a week i couldn't figure out how all that red never once stained the surface i still don't know
i think your heart was like those white plates those beautiful, generous, pure plates that concluded some of the best days of my life i spooned out my love but it never once stained the surface
how do i know?
because in the end you were just left with those white plates like they had never once been eaten on with a clean slate for someone else to stain
