Keen Observations of a Flake of Obsidian in the Anthropology Lab

She said her heart
      Was broken.
      A piece
      Of flint
      Or glass
      Or something else volcanic

      Was chipped.
      A piece
      Or flint
      Or glass
      Or something else one hundred times
      Sharper than steel.
