Today’s piece is titled ‘SLICE’
- a thin, flat piece cut from something
- to cut through or cleave with or as if with a knife
- a part, portion, or share
You say you are thin now
All your bones showing
All your beautiful fat sliced away by Nigeria
My lover is as skinny as Mariah Carey.
Your mind is sharp
Like a bullet, like a knife
Going straight through me
Killing me with pleasure.
You are whole but your entire life
They have tried to carve you
Into smaller parts, uneven portions
You are resilient. Weathered but still whole.
