Look at me.

I will implode
Like a gas giant, I want
To shrink into nothing
And then be everything
Hovering on your shoulder
Alongside the early morning fog
My bones will crack
With the weight of you
And I will breathe out
Overripe flowers into
your mouth, your eyes
Only to choke on the stems
When you force them down
my throat, my lungs.
Look at me, look at everything
Look at how small I can become.
