To Contain Myself by Hannah Linden

I’m in the mind of a cat – it’s as fit
a place as any. The hooks on my tongue
could do some good for a change.

O how I wish I could reach the dirty parts
of myself and lick and smooth, lick and smooth
until I ungag the fur of me. Then to stretch

myself beside the fire and dream
into my other lives.
