So satisfying, the smashing

the grab, the throw

plate cracked against floor

white chips like exclamation points


So satisfying, the swearing

the sound, the fury

guttural and careless

crashing through the room

blasting through screens into street


So sorry

I swept up bitter shards

offered a soft apology


And then


so satisfying, the finding

one secret sliver

lit by innocent sunbeam

cheering me


because it was my plate, and I was very angry
