Life like a pearl necklace

The pearls weren’t really white,

they were a warm oyster beige,

with little knots in between

so if they broke, you only lost one.

I wished my life could be like that,

knotted up

so that even if something broke,

the whole thing wouldn’t come apart.

I never thought of pearls, and life this way.
