Necessary Breaking

do you hear the wind chimes outside my window
as they make a noise, a random display of notes, a
non-melodic harmonization of airplanes and crickets

and the clouds above all of that
puffy with intelligence round the eyes of their bruised
searching for answers on the peaks of mountains

between the floor and the door
where we can lie down for hours and listen to the whispers of
what we must do, and how

bodies must meet
the broom and the dust pan,
spots within us
necessary for breaking
