of me and men

maybe the problem is that I’m too whole.


they like to feel useful;

to fix broken things.

and for a while there, I was

shattered and bare

the perfect fix-it project for a man with raw hands.

but these days I don’t need to find

some missing part

of me.

I am complete.

no longer just a puzzle piece

but the whole goddamn picture

and yet. they still

can’t see


see me.

  1. Love this, Ana. It’s not a problem that’s easy to resolve if you’re in an independent frame of mind. You’re so right on about men liking broken things. I know you meant “broken women.” I’ve seen that too often. xo
