There is a word in japanese
for fixing stuff that’s broken
in a way
that makes the fact that it was broken
really really apparent
because there is no shame
in being broken
and putting yourself back together
in a way
that isn’t exactly
how you were before.

I can never remember if it’s kintsugi
or kintsuroi-something
And yes
I could search for it
to properly include it in this poem
but I’m tired of looking at the internet.
