microscopic changes

i didnt just shatter a glass
i stepped on it so now there is
a microscopic shard of glass
that stings whenever i take a step
but i cant find it

i also blistered my fingers on the baking pan
and smoked so much i couldnt breathe
my hands have lost their stability
my voice has gained a sandpapery quality
except in private, it found this terrible vulnerability
high pitched and soft, like a kitten mewing
and i am no longer good or clean
