Day 25 [9:39-10:13 pm]
He took the perfectly good
multicolored glazed tiles
and purposefully broke them
with a hammer
into pointed pieces, large and small.
Taking up sandpaper and steel wool,
he attacked the freshly painted
little wooden end table with fervor,
revealing an older and altogether different
color underneath, and in places
A layer of glue slathered
over the table’s battered top
held the broken shards of tile
in seemingly random mosaic.
This piece of art
placed conspicuously as a focal point
refreshed an otherwise
dull and lifeless bathroom.
