Just Like Us

I was in a hurry
in one of my moods
My hands were full

trying to put the dirty
dishes in the sink
My favorite wine glass

the delicate hand
carved crystal one
from our trip to Waterford

I knew I should not
place it there
but I did

bumping my hand
against it and still
having time to catch it

but wondering still
if the fall would break it

  1. As the title indicates, this is not really about an accident and a wineglass; it is about negligence and inattention in a relationship, and how fragile situations can be.
