while i know these are destined for walls and bookshelves
in the homes of the elderly all the world over,
i like to think there are people who buy them as actual dishes.
because i would.
it would help keep things in perspective.
to see kate middleton glancing away nervously and biting her lip
and prince william squinting into a bright, yet intimidating future,
while i'm eating tea and cake off their dishes and all is well with the world.
