THE CATCH

It's all the floating daily irritations
which blind you
to the beauty you may somehow yet be
making from their shavings

for the sake of a beholder
whose tastes and purpose
your nervous system was never
built to imagine—what is a pearl anyway

but thankless work
done in secret around oversensitivity;
a little tenderness over time grows
too unwieldy for the oyster.
