Oh, I’m the Unreal Deal, Alright

It was a challenge to find
A paper bag large enough
To crawl, entirely, inside.

Paper sacks are for small things,
And a whole human body,
Even short and bent, is large.

Finally, I just bought one
From the manufacturer.
It thrilled me when it arrived.

I dragged it through the front door
And opened it in the hall,
And—at last—I crawled inside.

I’ve been writing and writing
Ever since, and I love it.
I just can’t write my way out.
