countless + orderly

shatter crockery,
put a brick through your
failed attempts at stained glass.
carefully, now –
meticulous;
tweeze every piece
from the ground.

countless tiny shards
glitter
under harsh sunlight,
seeming to multiply.
sort them by colour, quick –
before you fall victim to
tricks of the
light.

prepare the surface
with the due
diligence
of pre-surgery preparation.

pick a shard
at random:
start building
my likeness.
(at least,
you tell me this will be
me)

lay them one by one
glue fresh, inch-by-inch.
combine them
pointillist-meets-glass
into orderly
fashion.

finally,
something that makes
coherent sense.
