Pieces

Poesy plus Polemics

juan%20gris-585466 Portrait of Picasso by Juan Gris

sometimes
I feel incomplete
not unfinished
but broken

some parts
gone missing
or somehow
diminished

holes I can feel
but not locate
wells of aptitude
falling to dry

memories I know
I once had
but whose
substance is lost

more uneasy
déjà vu going on
where recall
was confident

I’ve lived
many places
traveled the world
time and again

while everyplace
added to me
did I also leave
pieces behind

do I fully exist
only everywhere
never again in
one somewhere

am I only real
during all time
merely a shade
on the present
