Sadie’s Shards

Learning that shards        
from the backyard of        
Sadie’s studio are now        
part of Eleanor’s        
sculpture happily        
housed inside St John
The Divine leads
me to wonder how gene
names specifically
amontillado malvolio
smaug indy barents
tribbles kuzbanian
that presently share space
in my notebook with
Proust’s Prince Von
Weinigen and Mme de
Villeparisis would
mingle with a description
of my shattered glasses
