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.
