My First Taste

I broke a dish once
My grandmother’s
Boží Milosrdenství
It was older than her
Shards of royal blue scattered the floor
One of a set of seven
Irreplaceable

That was my first sadness

She told me
Stand still
Let me sweep
I don’t want you cut
No need for your blood here
She kissed my cheek

My first taste of grace
Off broken china
On a kitchen floor
