Tough Break

Welcome back to Poetry Monday. As we scurry about preparing for the Christmas holiday (unlike any we had before), here is an opportunity to pause, take a deep breath, and relax for a moment. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

tough break

a brief reunion with her,

a respite from the road.

it was in Nice.

we had a weekend.

impurities evaporated by long separation

and crucible time running down

we dissolved and consumed each other,

nothing to slow the reaction-

convulsion heat

and then she was gone-

I fast fading

white to orange to red to black,

the cooling cracking splitting

shattering my hard won unity.

I picked up the pieces,

got to work.
