to the shards, thank you
reflected images distort, i make a mistake
this window, the lens i choose for you to see me through, it’s not all i do, only a clue, a scrolling stream where you feed when sitting in stranger-filled waiting rooms, stopping to chew
have you watched the videos?
read the poetry?
curiosity, behind the pictures, the monster i see, reflected when i don’t stop and piece together, you
helping me to see me more clearly
right before the picture comes into focus
i’ll find a way
there you’ll stay at my feet, a lifetime of searching set on repeat, after repeat
thank you for sticking around
thank you, to the shards
facets of my life falling to the floor when i forget there is an open door, line to connect, people to help dissect this tragic-tempting day filled with more beauty than i can convey in the words of a thank you letter
to the shards
