Comment on this Work


On my usual morning walk
I noticed a puzzle piece.
Given my propensity for administering emotion
to inanimate objects,
I felt immensely sad for this puzzle piece.
Why did this piece
get kicked to the curb?
Why is this piece
so undeserving?
It must be so lonely
and feel so useless
without the rest of the puzzle.
After all, what good is a single puzzle piece?

Needless to say, I could relate.
