The shard of poetry

on a vase

sitting on the shelf

near

the pickled eggs

and by a box of cereal

just a shard

I turned it in my hands

but found no more

just a feeling there was more

but there was no more

just the vase

with the fragment

painted on

as though an afterthought

I am done with the vase

and then the verse added

but never completed.

empty.

quiet.

spent.

leaning against the pickled eggs

as though

too much alcohol

too much fun

unfinished.
