You-
Are without
Bungy chord
Free.falling,
Bouncing down a mountain of clothing
Ninja.
The way you vanish under couches,
Tables,
Beds…
Thin air,
Incredible.
You are splendid in your ability to suborn me
Into giving you a cool drink.



Where do you go
When you disappear?
Is there a secret society of pacifiers
And each time that you fall
An opportunity arrives
For you to attend a meeting?



I’ve seen your color change before
A tint of anger,
Betrayal,
Disgust
As reflexes of mine
Have caught you



A mouth is usually a starting place
For food
But I need it to be a home
For you,
A place of enjoyment –
Learn to like it
For both of our sake.
