GIVE ME SOME TIME

TO THINK ABOUT IT

TO SHUDDER

AND FALL

AND STEW

OPEN THE WINDOWS

I NEED SOME MORE AIR

THIS GORDIAN KNOT’S NOT ONE TO UNDO!

I’M SOGGY FROM

SOAKING UP

ALL OF YOUR RAIN

I’M TIRED

FROM THE LONG TRIP HOME.

I’M WELL EDUCATED

IN THE ART OF COMPLAIN

AS TASTY AS AN OLD BONE.

PITCHED MY TENT

IN THE PIT OF YOUR STOMACH

I CRAWL IN

TO HELP YOU DECIDE.

I’VE DONE MY BEST

TO DISCOVER THIS WRECK

WHILE YOU WAIT FOR ME

QUIETLY, OUTSIDE
