A Part of Me


A part of me has gone
to stretch and yawn under the ground

bathed in the care of the sun-warmed earth
heedless of the thumps of walking feet

Content to let roots grow into the sodden core
after the night of rain
and suck up all the rotting love
that has turned sickly sweet with neglect

A small piece leaves everyday

to lie safe in its own bed
A rusty cage with bent bars
sees it go
