You’re welcome!

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.
