Vases of Crystal






Vases of Crystal





My child,

I looked into your eyes

When you barred me

From the door



And they were

Two

Vases of crystal

Filled to the brim



With ice water

That I could feel

On my skin

From my place



Outside

Even though,

As hard as I stared -

They never spilled.
