Ode to Another Urn

Devotional ceramic urn –
whose alchemy of parts
has set in porcelain the turn
of warring dying hearts

immortalizing most the crack
which hurt the worst, on top:
the first betrayal, knife-in-back,
that made the loving stop.

Adore has burned into abhor:
there is no further chase;
yet here they are forevermore
in eye-to-eye embrace.
