tiny glass souls

they are not quite all gone, there 

are one or two in my pocket

two makes a pair and i’m willing to share

with you

 

call them marbles, they are part of a child’s game

but i think of them now as liquid frozen in time

changing shape so slowly you can’t see them

not even in the corner of your eye

 

so look at them now as they are trying to find

their own level

free them and figure out where they will go

keep them inside and watch them gather at windows

kinship unblinking as one form looks out

another looks through

 

tiny glass souls, the end of silica’s teardrop

rattling around in the pocket of time

knowing that out there

there is something better to do

 

two makes a pair

and i’m willing to share

with you
