i'm a very strange creature...
To Nelly Pooh

i'm a very strange creature
you're a very strange creature
we're all very strange creatures with strange
bodies
strange features
and
small animal souls

but
let's not forget how you were
when i was good
and all the whys and wherefores
do mat
         ter
and how i would've been if he
weren't and I wasn't
and you weren't

happy though
lonely
penniless but not useless
cut off
but still listening
       like a fox
    in a box
    in thick summer night
air
in the field
