Poem: Pufferfish

Round as the Earth, he matches the shadow
That lived forever in his nightmares.
Gutteral gasps gape inside
As into the mirror, he stares and stares.

Is this forever? Or just a moment
Of suffering and embarassment and self-loathing.

It’s a matter of growth, and it’s a question of
And you can collapse if you’re brave enough but don’t forget to breathe.
