Cut Glass

Cut glass
on a windowsill
starch-stained and empty of all but atmosphere

Plate glass
in a window frame
fossilized raindrop dappled

on a floor
spiderweb splintered and shattered

Window glass
across the carpet
tear-washed and bloody

Mirror glass
in a sink
toothpaste spattered and reflecting nothing at all

Broken glass
in her hand
blood smeared and sparkling

Etched class
in a shuttered case
far removed
from every eye
