Sharp; Distance

On the beach, somewhat distant but still within sight of that croquet wicket, is a piece of pottery sticking up out of the sand.  It’s one piece from a broken ceramic plate.

It has one very sharply pointed edge.

That point would cut.

Not neatly, though, like a well-sharpened knife.  It would cut raggedly, painfully, but deeply, should anyone’s flesh run across it.

It could do great damage to a foot, should someone come walking by and not see it.

It could do great damage to a hand that might cling it.

…to a heart.

Fragile?

It came from a church service.  It’s embedded in the sand, with its nasty point upward toward the sky (South side?), for this entire week.
