There is a seam in my glass mug, but no hem and no zipper.
What holds the two edges together? What keeps the neck from raveling?
The mug is wearing a glistening pendant with transparent chain:
A bead of moisture suspended, a sweet drop of rain.
Her skin is the color of coffee: trembling, scented, reflective.
There is conversation: memory: faded print, falling away.
