How do I explain what I am thinking?
As words fail me, all I can do is
ask Brecht to do the honours...

THE LOVELY FORK - Bertolt Brecht

When the fork with the lovely horn handle broke
It struck me that, deep within it
There must've always been a fault. With difficulty
I summoned back to my memory
My joy in its flawlessness.
