First Throw

Red mud cup on the wheel.
Your first. Slice it off with wire.
It dries. Note the bottom crack.
Damn. Change your plans.
Feed it to electric fire. Shrink.
Think coffee size, get tea.
Glaze it like an earth or sky
With your sloppiest thought.
Only for your hands. This cup.
Tiny planter? Better. Tequila.
Drink from the bottom seep.
Dream wabi sabi silver seam.
