I want to give this half-familiar self
everything: a firm mattress for their
bad back, their favourite chocolate
cookie, too many greasy takeaways
because they aren’t perfect but they
already know this & that knowledge
is making them sick the way a dog
that thinks it deserves punishment
will try to make its body so small it
disappears so as not to be noticed
until one day someone reaches out
& gently invites them to trust that
a voice can be as soft as a light rain
in springtime just as the full moon
in Leo & some early miracle arrives
