Accidentally — NaPoWriMo day 25 —

surrounded by broken kaleidoscope glass
lovers’ faces refracted and multiplied by six
I could play jacks among the shards, the superball rising and falling
onesies, pigs in the pen, carts before horses
the way I’ve always played
but with your face etched on the slivers
of shattered silvered glass

Not a ballad. In fact, not even new (July 2012). So here I remind myself of a couple of things my grad school mentors used to tell us: “Recycle, reuse, reuse” and “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”

Clearly, the power of failure is underrated. Enjoy the weekend! ~LD
