Breaking

1.9.12

They say “breaking”

.                       though it is difficult to imagine

.               molecules tearing asunder

.                       the form no longer holding–

perhaps it is more like “pouring”

.                             or “freeing itself”–

.                  this is like nothing you have experienced

a confused signal where “this” could

.               easily be “that”–

then, as if it were the most natural

.       action, they incise

.             a neat line crosswise

exposing something so tender

.            you simply cannot bear to look–

waters parted, she prone–

.          lips open, trying to form words–
