"Ginori, Dulevo, and Aynsley," named after porcelain manufacturers, is a poem about the teacup collection I look forward to having in the future. It is a piece about longing for stability after years of moving from place to place every few years, and being scared to start such a fragile thing as a teacup collection. The poem ends with said teacup collection, yet a realization that things don't go to plan anyway and shattered and chipped porcelain, or "laugh lines and cracked cups," should be expected.
P.S. The part that references "time" instead of "thyme" is intentional, both for the purpose of a double-meaning and a pun.
