Portion Sizes

Portion Sizes

Are we not

all simply people in pieces

giving out tiny pieces of ourselves

to others, who try to piece together

what was purposefully removed from the whole piece

they hoped to receive

whilst still breaking off just one piece of their own

as I try to regrow a replacement piece

for the piece the last person refused to return

because we all think we deserve

to keep a piece of a person

as justice for how another person

split us into further pieces

the last time we tried to piece together the puzzle

and will we not

all simply remain in perpetual wars

till we relinquish our lost and stolen pieces

and reach for the peace that’s really missing.
