Vase

Colorless now.
The sunlight wore
the last of your pigments out.
Swan-white and mute,
you sit on the windowsill,
hipbone-sharp
and anemic.


Vascular plants made their homes
in your socketed opening.
Now you're a tomb-
chipped and unused, marred and pale.
This is a death, a waste.
But your owner hadn't the heart
to throw you out.
