pieces
of broken glass
falling
     falling
into a broken glass
of water...
     i read the script,
though i've read it
               many
                    times--
only to understand,
     to know,
          to grasp.
perhaps,
     to possess.
for a minute--
     or a minute second
i wondered if the water
was a liquid
     or a solid.
as i listened
i heard it crash...
     i was mourning
the death of the stars
as the world began to
blind my eyes;
the morning.
pieces
     breaking into pieces
shattering the silence
     pieces
          pieces...

hey guys..thanks so much for responding..this is one of my favorite odd ones!  in college i used to pull these weirdos out of my .... uh, mind (!) like they were nothin'!!  to be quite honest with you, it has many meanings, depending on where you are in the poem..but to explain it would be very difficult..!!

anyway, i DO enjoy the responses!!  thanks again       dg
