Day 99 – Smash Tea Kettle

You had that
smash tea kettle
you were
always breaking pieces off
and handing them to me

I strung them together
those pieces
I wore your
smash tea kettle pieces
round my neck

I loved it more
than any diamond
ever saw

I kept a piece
of your smash tea kettle
in my heart
it was the sharpness
that finally

cut me loose


Day 8 – A RingPop From Florida

I found a RingPop from Florida
in a pocket of my suitcase
from ten months ago.

It was melted
but I ate it.

Everything from Florida is melted,

The jewelry I own is plastic,

It’s nice to find a taste
of home
now and then.
