Me, Tiny Hamster
Spinning in Infinite Wheel
In a Clear Glass Cage

Me, betrayed by Time
I struggle to write Haikus
In Teenager’s Room

Dark. Cold. I’m lonely
The Bedroom Door cracks open
Teenage Boy arrives

I need Him, He needs me
Solidarity Economy
Help me help You, Boy

Boy speaks softly:
“Hold me close, Tiny Hamster”
Together, we breathe
