Trying to Write a Poem While Reading the Children’s Encyclopedia

Mammals all have similar skeletons. . . .  The ribcage holds the tiger’s lungs in place. 

In grad school I dated a large mammal 
who could fit my whole fist in his mouth,
which, I’ll be honest, is more fun 
than I’d had in a long time. 

I was a smaller mammal then, 
burrowing under the covers and dreaming
when the large mammal would leave to play basketball 
with a poetry book in his back pocket.
