A Mother Broke

A mother broke in 1969
not a fall off the shelf
explode across the linoleum
atom splitting

like the beach carried to sea
grain by grain
or a hairline crack
turned against the wall
hustled to a corner
into a chair
under a blanket
until no more hiding
the pieces falling off
into a chalk outline
a shadow silhouette

Yesterdays snaked her ankles
into it's hungry undertow
leaving the shaking bits
the fisted glances
fading to flatline
folding into herself

Rummaging her jewelry ...
