A Poem a Day (94): Paper people


Paper people

Pieces of a life,
Of a person,
Walking in parts,
A cut-out kind of thing;
Words, pictures, phrases
Spun as in a dance,
And so we begin
To wander in,
Trying on the sounds,
Fumbling with expressions,
Colours ripped and bodied,
Rainbows cut adrift,
Parting, so revealing
A life in parts,
Dismembered, remembered.
