He’s hard
where I’m overly soft
where I’m sensitive
hard but not callous
rigid where I bend
secure where I waver

there are weak spots, worn down
or just never exposed
prior to now, I can’t tell

small pieces
given to me like parts to a puzzle
sometimes I have enough
to make them fit
to figure it out
sometimes they’re put aside
so I can try them later
