sundaybest

of faded pearls
my grandma loved –
though where they came
uncertain
as an unmarked box
the man brought down
one Sunday
after church

tied with dimestore string
fated stamp
of someplace sweeter
another name for wearing
fit the same

as stockings
hats
and easter shoes
a blushing bride all over
reminded of a right
before her spring

. . .
