a tooth of teeth once shattered

a tooth of teeth
once shattered

once shattered
shattered hard

against an arm of arms
what mattered

when read through
piles marked “discard”

what glows
is glow

no need
for how

you shatter fast
your frozen toe

is that the reason
for you bow

is that the reason
you’ve climbed low

you work your fingers
down to nubs

and in this cold bag
of you bones

too late for rubs
too late for rubs

one with a field
of all alones

content to be
the never knowns
