Everything is being ripped
apart. An overdue bill, a paper
napkin during dinner, the universe
and all its molecules. The edges
are becoming more uneven, serrated
and irreparable. A Japanese man
carefully folds his origami horse
as if his life depended on it,
the surgeon pulls his sutures tight,
a word Amen completes the prayer,
a child embraces her father.
