mosaic heart [poem]

the definition of insanity is
doing the same thing
again
and again
and again
and expecting a new result
I throw myself against this life
spun-glass meeting concrete
and marvel
at the shattering of my heart
into the tiny pieces
before I pick them up and
put myself back together
to try again

the definition of stubbornness is
the insistent need to do the same thing
again
and again
and again
until a new result happens
I am constantly
making and unmaking myself
against life’s hard edges
without pausing to reconsider my course
always pushing and pulling
and living each moment in awe
of my own
deconstructed
mosaic
heart
