Lines Meeting (1932)
Pierre Dubreuil
He tried the rusted key in the antique lock
and though it met resistance,
he heard the tumblers shift
and there inside the metal box
lay a cracked porcelain heart.

With his gentle hands
he polishes it with care then fills in the cracks
with pure molten gold and a broken heart is whole again
