It Kills You Seven Times

It is a childish thing, is it not,
to see a shattered window and think
to pick up all the shards

Your hands are left bloodied,
and no matter how delicate
the process, how terrible
the pain,
the glass will not stitch itself

Ah, but if the window
were pieced together,
would the history of breakage
not make it more beautiful?
