Fragile (to Bean)

Are we

Not slate

Or shale

Fragile and

Easily chipped

Broken when

Dropped and

Damaged beyond

Repair are

We not

Better left

In place

Than being

Discovered I

Think not

Upon discovery

We become

And in

Becoming we

Learn our

Nature blame

Not your

Handlers for

It is

They that

Found you

And caused

You to

Be who

You are
