Our Band

They say it's indestructible,
this band of smoky grey shimmer,
and so I tend to remove it when
I deal with the breakables of life--
dishes and glasses
and walls and steel--
because otherwise it might
gouge and cut and penetrate
the other things in life oft
thought are solid, but are not,
unlike this band of ours
which I gleeful spring to wear
despite its potency against
the many lesser things in life.
