To Regenerate or Not

how many times
can she knock a figure
off a pedestal
put it back up there
knock it off again

before it shatters
into a thousand tiny shards
of notes and skillfully rhymed words

before a sliver
of a G Major chord
blinds her left eye

before she can run
along a bridle path
free of all champing

and desire
to play with marble
and steel strings
