Dark grey mass


From meteorite


You abrade


Scale off memory of impact –


Your shell

Not so hard it crumbles

Not so vulnerable it shatters


Resilience a specimen of the long game

Polymorphous – a learned behavior for trauma

Crystals have such nice faces


In a family of diamonds

Sub-metallic luster


Your allotropic

Double consciousness


White carbon

Thin bones
