I broke myself apart into pieces of each self I knew

I offered definitions descriptions explanations

stories

songs

all the words I could find to say look at me and everything that I am

I am this and I am that and sometimes there and sometimes here

I spread my words across sheets of endless paper,

     this time they will know me.

 

When they told me I was not who I said I was I told them they were who I knew them to be.

They were thieves and liars and colonizers and rapists and murderers and deniers of every truth that ever met them.

 

I set myself a space to breathe.

I gathered all those parts of me and held each one close to speak.
