The Thing of It

When you break the spine
of a thing
it is quite difficult to return
to its former shape or resilience.

When you’ve destroyed something
it is hard for her to bounce back
with any alacrity.
It may reform
rejuvenate, restructure into something
resembling its original identity
but it will be just a resemblance.
The likelihood
of it returning to former glory
is small indeed.

When you take away some thing’s
hopes and dreams
don’t just sit back awaiting a thank you
as someone once said
(or something like it).

In any case
be aware
that when you break your toys
even when repaired
they might be the same toy
originally broken.
