Sometimes I let myself shrink.


Sometimes it’s an accident.

I don’t feel myself contracting

Till I slip out of my clothes.


Sometimes it’s on purpose.

I feel the hollow, but ignore it,

Let it grow till its enormous,

Let it grow until I shrink.


The girl in the mirror is too tiny,

She won’t look me in the eyes.
