So Long

Poetry_ReadingNot the entire gestalt,
please.

An excerpt only,
a quotation

Or an allowance,
a mere cut,

The essence,
an installment,

A percentage,
a splinter
or quota.

Just for me, boil it down
a bit
with a near estimate

Or a short passage,
a take on it,

A fraction,
a particle,

A sliver, a chip,

An extract, a  small slice,

Or a war ration.

Only one episode, please,
at
poetry readings.
