Redefinition

who are you
sum of your parts
but less
and more
and now that your parts are fractured
where
exactly
does that leave you

wife
mother
daughter
other
poet
princess
sugar dumpling
doctor, lawyer, indian chief?

but no
walking in darkness
dancing in rain
puddle splasher
Jedi slasher
freak of predawn
in silence
alone

lonely
likely
but slowly learning
to be okay
with alone
