Here in this 21st century culinary domicile
a voice from the radio: “we have more
disposable income than ever before”.

Around me a dented ‘happy birthday’ crown,
six plastic hold-all clothes pins, patriotic napkins.

Earlier in the Fitzwilliam, an exhibition:
Renaissance to the Enlightenment,
how the British spent their pocket-money.

Chinoiserie shoes with detachable heels,
a teapot resembling a pineapple, multi-part flexible armour.
