of mice and man.

I spent many a night crying
about how my future is changing too suddenly
about how the man who'd so generously
given me his x chromosome
kicked out us three mice
no x's
no o's

he left us to scurry for food
and to quickly find shelter
but this was no easy task
seeing as every golden opportunity
was blocked by a trap

and on that final day
you stayed and helped me move
and before anything was even loaded
you stopped
and took me in your arms

then for a split second I didn't breathe
but you were so warm
and I was so scared
then I didn't want to move
because I did not belong in houses
as much as I belonged in those arms
