reassemble

It's a good thing I've never had my heart shattered like crystal
Never carried its precious burden out to share with a guest
and had it beaten from my hands
and handed back to me in pieces.
Never.



No, I am built of different stuff, of clay, not crystal. Lucky
to be so unfragile, so dependable, something to use
Every day.

and in someways just as fragile.

clay doesn't often survive a dropping, or a falling down a staircase...

or was that the point?

Yixing teapots, without regular use, become increasingly fragile.
