Self-Partnered by Sanjeev Sethi

With each intimacy
you leave a portion
to another being.
Piece by piece, you lose
bits of yourself
to one more person.
Proprium has it:
slivers of your little secret
lie with this or that entity.
And, you stand by for
the Molotov cocktail
to go kablooey.
It is best 
to be inbound.
One with yourself.
