The milk pitcher

Humbly offered
perfect
in use

smooth hard
rough soft

from liquid
once
now containing

handle curved
from jaunty sides
it's mouth turned out

cream inside it's
blue cream skin

this fired breast
with which we amend our
chosen libation

offers all it has
and once empty
is refilled
