just sorta happened

it wasn’t a shatter, it was just a gradual cracking that began innocuously

no dramatic explosion into shards

one day

it fell apart

you would expect pomp and circumstance, and all that you got was a fizzle

just

an innocuous crack, not even sure you were the cause, it may have happened years before

extraneous pressures, internal flaws, who can say

but it was worse this way, silent, unexpected, far worse than a pop, an explosion in one glorious spray

it just happened
