Patchwork Quilt (I: Parts)

Cobbled together is my path:

a patchwork quilt of scraps,

scrapes and mishaps, worn-out parts,

sunsets and ephemeral bits,

repeating jigs and campfire moments,

losing card games, simply losing,

never being enough.

Laughter and lying,

apple blossoms dying,

mundane complaints, getting dizzy,

getting faint, getting clobbered. Falling

down stairs, looking up at the stars,

taking apart the puzzle

parts-by-heart.
