Shattered Glass

When I heard the news

I felt the sun in my heart

It wasn’t there to warm me

It burned a hole in my chest

When I heard the news

I laughed shattered glass

gasped under a thought I couldn’t grasp

And reached for the bottle

When I heard the news

Black and white print

of everything we were

turned yellow

where my ribs met

the weight collapsed

all that was good about the day.
