Remember - Poem by Alice Walker

Remember
When we ended
It all
-for a weekend-
& how
We knew?
You took
The tea bowl
That I
Broke
In
Carelessness
To glue together
Again
At your
House.

    Amazingly done. Incident of a broken tea pot imposed on a seemingly close relationship- shattered and 'glue together.... Again'. Thanks a lot. (Report)Reply

    OH MY GOD this is so amazing, this poem speaks to my heart, can't you see how the glue represents a soul, and the pot a body, and the repairing the link between the soul and the body? ? (Report)Reply
