The kaleidoscope

the kaleidoscope

fell to the floor with a crash,

never knowing
how fragile it was,
this paper tube filled with 
pieces of broken glass
and sparkling metals
that catch your eye.

now pieces of trash
eluding the broom bristles,
slipping into floor cracks,
sure to show back up,
at some future time, reminding
you again of this moment,
when you dropped
the
kaleidoscope.
