Maps of Scars

The perfect brush stroke
is not needed,
nor does the clay require
the perfect kneading.

I don’t need reality
presented to me
in its vivid, unfiltered
detail, to see
how beautiful you are,
shattered glass and maps
of scars.

Even explosions have beauty…

I learned that the hard way
and I’m still digging out
the shrapnel
to this day.

So, my beloved,
your paint is running,
imperfect…

yet stunning.
