On breaking up
A visual poem
A spring hook breaks halfway up the mountain.
An iceberg falls off the glacier and collapses in the sea.
A shark, caught by fishermen, aborts her children.
A thorn, pulled out of a palm.
A string bounces after launching an arrow.
A beak breaks the shell from the inside.
A bee tears the spider web.
A spring river grumbles, crushing the ice.
A new bud opens up with a quiet pop.
Kids made a paper boat, and it sails by the brook, through the melted snow, for all the town to see.
