Ramshackle Self

cobbled together from
broken bits and leftover
childhood hurts, scars
like my teddy bear who
is all patches, now
kept on my shelf
i cling to the corners
of my holey blue blanket
though it really doesn’t
keep me warm anymore
i did the best i could
at the time, with what i had
this blue plastic tarp
doesn’t keep me dry anymore
yet i don’t let go of
this ramshackle self
