Day 225 (2nd post): a slick fix

It fell.
To pieces.
Still salvageable.
But it will never be the same again.
You can try to mend it.
And you do.
You cement it together.
But your analytical eye will see every little fractured line.
Hiding carefully there in plain sight.
You won’t let on.
You will wear your best poker face.
Earnestly and wholeheartedly.
Because you understand that anything can take on a different shape.
And that even things that break can shape you.
But you know how easy it is to slip through the cracks.
You know that, too.
