POEM

Aggy Vanderpool

Untitled

The shatter of broken glass
Jagged blue shards
Sparkle on the living room floor
I dropped the vase
The one you gave me for an anniversary
It was so pretty in the afternoon sun
On a different table
In a different hallway
Pieces of regret
Swept into the dustpan
And dropped, tinkling into the waste can
One less memory to dust
