Mazel Tov

I'd thought to crack a bottle
of champagne against the corner
of our first home

instead, the first thing I broke
was a basement window,
throwing a ball for the dog.

Oh, the immediacy of shatter and collapse
the laws of momentum and gravity
so unbreakable!


  1. Congratulations!

    'Course, now you'll be sucked into that never-ending project of "home improvement"... :)

  2. Thanks, Marie! You can expect to see more house-inspired reflections in verse posted here in the coming months.
