shattered stills

There’s something comforting in broken glass;
its texture, for instance, is remarkable:
it can’t become the whole piece again,
and yet, the imperfection makes it palpable.
It cannot claim the vanity of gloss,
nor can it win the best of the awards –
and yet, for someone something that is lost
is worth so much until the point it hurts.
