Acres of broken china lie amid
the ravages of neuropathy and arthritis.
It’s best if it is empty when it falls,
though parallel patterns of spill fascinate.
Time will replace breakables with softness,
but still will want minutes and hours of cleaning.
Add me to your schedule! Clean-up time mocks.
Here’s a guest that doesn’t take NO for an answer.
My blog poems are rough drafts.
