I tried to keep my heart unbroken
gathered each bead from the severed strand
pieced together shards of blue and white
I'll be alright if I just keep going
I told myself
But it would have been better
to simply name this grief
stop to sob in the middle of the sidewalk
the grocery aisle
the subway as it burrowed
its way through the heart
of this great beating city
until I knew
devastation is the beginning 
of the miracle I am meant to live
