I pour the golden lacquer down,
It soaks the dark and muddy ground.
As light and dark begin to meet,
Yin and Yang pools at my feet.

I break my bones and let them heal,
I let myself savor the feel.

Ancient beings claw and whine,
Their song is short,
they sing two lines:

“Fear not for your broken hearts,”

“You’re stronger in the broken parts.”
The Japanese art of Kintsugi, or “golden joinery,” is the repair of broken pottery with gold laquer.
