Ceramic decoration left by a young visitor, reduced to potsherds, Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona
I thought a little paste would work,
I even tried some glue,
Hoping that my handiwork
Would hold the shards of blue.
But glue and paste do nothing,
As far as I can see,
To piece together something
That’s broken as can be.

Ceramic frog on a blue mat, Southern California
Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
On a bright blue day,
the hillock rimmed with palm trees
hides a snake or two.

Blue window, northern New Mexico
first week of the year—
at the widow’s blue window
a tattered cobweb

huddling beneath the blue boat
nurses her baby

Battered blue bucket at the ruins, El Charco del Ingenio conservation area, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
Battered blue bucket—
how long until a tinker
comes to plug the holes?

Battered things abound in this world.
