A Part

My bed is still warm

When the next body rolls in

But I'm not

I'm numb

Until,

Your body

- Or his -

Envelopes mine

And I can breathe

Because

I am consumed

I am part of you,

Of someone that lives

That moves

That loves

I am

I was

I will be

Because I'm not apart

Just a part

your balmy words can't dry.

An easel for pigments to trap;
row by row hung from a vine.
Libation pressed flesh and sap;
A bloodied cudgel rests supine.

When is a person not a person?

When they are different from you?

How many people do we pass by each day?

How many are looking at you?

Why does the man sit on the street with a drink

And ask for money from you?

When is a person not a person?

Is that person  you?
