The sound of a cup's demise
A surface displayed,
this dazzling beauty,
unaware of any danger,
last moment of its true form,
before the impact,
styled in dramatic tragedy,
masterful snap and crack!
chilling crash! as the charging pieces,
clash! and shatter to bits of glass-like,
fragments continuing outward,
In a stride of searing volume,
enough to wake the dead,
further spreading caution,
to the disdain of the careless,
Finally settling in one last,
Vibrating pulse of little particles,
rickety clinks of scattered trinkets,
Careful children! Watch your step!
And that's the tale of the cup.
