Yesterday my cat brought me a gift:

A broken eggshell. Powder blue with earthy freckles

With crisply fractured edges of porcelain.

A broken vessel. It grew warm in my hand,

A tear of yolk smeared on the ivory inside

Glistening like the skin of a raindrop.

A delicate reminder of what could have been.
