Like a wine glass
tipped over but not broken;
like a cell phone battery in the red
but still working;
like a look that says so much more
than words ever could;
like an over the shoulder
toss of salt to ward off danger;
like a hug held too long
not to be noticed
we sally forth
amid smoke and mirrors.
