woke up today
wanted to curl into the afternoon
but i knew that the sheets would just grow
warm with my body
and soon, sweaty

but i was so comfy in it
curled up like a catepillar in greenery
tucked and hidden away
until fingers pluck me out and smear me on the inside of brown paper bags

i got up
toweled off
went back into bed
and fell asleep for as long as others allowed me

i wish sometimes
that i could just silent the hum of the world
but just hiding under the covers

avoiding the projections,
by just saying yes
to being uncomfortable
but i never like to
so i put up guards as thick as walls
that leave me vunerable to be attacked
