Poetry together

KINTSUGI | Hetty Mosforth’s poem wishes the broken pieces of a relationship back together.

Poetry

kintsugi: a philosophy of mending

by Hetty Mosforth

Nails on a chalk board
our broken edges meet
the conversation grinding
our first in while.

No sorry is enough
for a stab in the back
the splintering hurt
and the shards in our sides.

Time sandpapers smooth
the roughness between us
leaving only the fault lines
our history of breaking.

If wishful thoughts
could bring us together
we’d be golden-seamed
a second time.
