anywhere (but small)

there is an art
to becoming smaller
than you actually are

I mean physically smaller
or
seeming to be

first
find a corner
of the room

an empty room
for preference

then
squeeze into it

fold up
your legs

fold down
your torso

bury your head
in your knees

bite your hand
so you don’t
start screaming

fold more

deeper
into yourself

like a huddle
of laundry
cast casually
away

almost
as though
you
are not
there

are nowhere
but
your scream
