New poem

Dangers and Side Effects

Breakage is unavoidable.

You will bleed.
It is one of the risks
Of ownership.

Sometimes,
The pain will overcome you,
You will fall to your knees
and hear it beating,
Altered, scarred but intact.

Yes, the changes are permanent,
But the pain is temporary.
Crying is recommended.

It’s a mercurial muscle.
It can shatter,
and each piece will reach out,
Grab others and pull itself together.

Oh,
It’s usually bigger than before.
