Coming Apart I


the pieces of the shattered cup

settled on the floor

its noise having silenced everything


and the current fight wound down


yet because there remained skin to be shed

and no assurance that the new being would be friendly

he tried to step back

but her eyes drew his in and said quite plainly


there is no escape
