jigsaw pieces

I have this jigsaw

It’s all red and white 

and black

But it doesn’t have many parts

 

I have this jigsaw with only a few pieces

A few pieces to give to those few

People to hold my red and white and —

Not black though

 

I gave a piece to a child as a child

And the child kept it

I gave a piece to a halo

But she burned it all up and now it’s all black

I gave a piece to fire

And I tore it up myself

 

Now I don’t have a few pieces

I only have one or two

So I give it to grey and black

Not a child, halo, or fire 

 

ashes can’t burn my red and white — 

and black
