Swept Away

A Poem

Brilliant shards open the art
of the dust pan
the found criticism
Empty of significance
the structure pointing only
to a clean room
The million pennies of the useless
thoughts
finally swept away
…or are hiding under the rug
waiting to jump out
at you
when you finally shut your eyes
& want to not move
