Sit Down and Listen

Sit down
Gather your skirts
Gather the pieces of your heart and listen.
Listen.

Your heart is fragile, cracked
Ready to shatter if carelessly held
Handle it with care
Place it in glass vases
Or in porcelain urns.

And if these containers should break
And your pain spill and overflow
Stream down your cheeks in salty rivers
Set aflame all your dreams –
You can only gather your skirts,
Gather the pieces of your heart
Sit down
And listen.
