the shard was dull until

shard

the shard was dull until
i rubbed it in the river
coaxing out the
blues and purples
until they glowed
almost pulsed
beneath their ancient glaze
blushed and almost pulsed
their secret mommy colors
in the flinching sunlight—
excited, i took my find
to daddy
and listened as he told me
all about the savages
