One of Many

I’m not half of this
Or part of that
Or some fraction of these
I am one of many
Unlike some
Who may be all of one
But only one

Notes to this poem…

Inspired by how author Jessica J. Lee answers the question “where are you from”, in her interview on the CBC Sunday Edition for December 27, 2020 (portion discussing this is after 1:06:30, but started around 49 minutes).
