She puts the glass

on the table top.

“What do you see?”

I know what she’s trying to do;

get me to say

‘half full’

or ‘half empty’.

She has no idea

of the depth

my pessimism has,

for all I see

is a puddle

and a pile of shattered glass.

I doubt super glue can fix that! Maybe one should invest in Dixi cups. Gosh it sounds like i know everything. Oh nooooo! Not another... scarpering away before the fine china hits the walls.
