FRACTURED FAÇADE
(10/30/13)


a beer
bottle
was thrown
almost cleanly
through
the plate glass
of our office's
front door
over
the weekend

from the
round hole
at the lower
left
jagged cracks
radiate
to the four
corners

the bottle
rests
unbroken
on the interior
carpet
surrounded
by crushed
crystals

amazing

almost
beautiful

like some
avant-garde
art project

our starting
routines
are interrupted
if only
for a day

~

I'm reminded
of the hurt
hurtled
through
my shattered
psyche
by my love

surely
more messy
but not quite
as artsy

with a much
longer
duration
of disruptiveness

no amount
of plywood
will cover
that damage
