Ballerina, Shattered

by Stephen Paden
This is for a very special friend of mine.

I’m a ballerina on a
shelf
push me
off,
I
s  –  h  –  a  –  t  –  t  –  e  –  r
but if you put me back
together
I resume form—mostly
for the pieces that are lost
(those smaller than the eye can see)
are lost in time forever
and they were everything of me
