when i am in your
two hands cupped
like a small white bird
with a small soft coo
and wet eyes
and all

i cant remember how it felt
not to be
and cant imagine why
i wasn't

crawling out
of those two cupped hands
is like leaving the womb
rolling out of
the bed with plaid woolen blankets
and into the coldest damn morning

and i cant remember how it felt to
be held so warm
cant imagine why
i had to leave
