My body wants to be small: to curl up
In a den of leaves and grasses,
Hidden away from the world. My body wants to eat
Fruit and nuts, to hold morsels in
Tiny hands and nibble them with tiny teeth,
And when the sky gets dark and the air
Gets cold my body wants to find
Your body, secreted away in our hidden burrow,
And sleep.
