Japanese Smoking Plate

My smoking plate is Japanese.
Hand painted rectangle
Glazed green
with clear light cracks beneath the surface
making it feel fragile
and aged
into quality.

I wonder who
will see me
when I am old
and if they will feel similar
about me.

I Want Something

I want
Something to escape into,
Something to give myself over to,
Something to provide meaning, because
making it myself
has become exhausting.
