A Slice of Self

April 18, 2008
By Adele Smith, Rochester, NY

take your meat
cleaver and

with a surgeon's precision

s l i c e

my skull [ into perfectly
proportioned apple pieces]
letting my identity
drip out; sugar drops

sprinkle my exposed
bittersweet thoughts with
salt and cinnamon

chill well. serves a
multitude [ better than loaves and fishes]
