We deal in fragments

We deal in fragments
because we have little else.

Some are beautiful,
shining, concentrated;
some are ever more striking
than the imperfect

But precious fragments,
delicate and unique,
are fractured from her being
every day.

Broken off and discarded
without her consent.

We try to catch them
but they fall much faster
than we can see,

and land farther
than we can reach.
