The Deconstruction of Idiom

The Deconstruction of Idiom

A Poem by Amber Doll

Man proclaims glass homes are not made for stone throwers.

This home is translucent, built of gem and raindrops;

Which begat the lake, home to restless rowers.

That vernal pool, I have skipped many a stone across,

That said, I assure, some glass homes

Were naturally and carefully made for stones

So therein I shall hide from the callous earth,

harmoniously, dying, beside the home’s hearth;

With one emerald bottle to

coax out my mindless mirth.

Author's Note

Amber Doll
Living in glass houses sometimes warrants stone throwing;
what if your home is a lake?
clear and crystal as glass.
someone might throw a stone.
