. mending .

do you glue this, fix that,
or do you simply replace.

you must know by now,
we eat off mended plates,
and rise when birds sing.

it may be a forgotten thing,
those cotton hankies, darning,
repairing old , hung together
with string.

yet, it may be you do the same,
standing tall, waiting.

for pins.
