the contextless poet

.
















if the little girl
breaks
into little pieces
who will pick them up?

for the little girl
breaks
each time she bends
to remember what was dropped.

if another boy
breaks
another piece
of the little broken heart;

what is offered next is just
breaks
and pieces;
not a perfect girl, at all.
