Merely Mouse

Merely,
little mouse,
Wake up!
the walls are cold, cold
with your sleep

Merely mouse,
hungry for air
Take the sun away
fill the moon in your wake

Little mouse,
un-merrily,
why are you so tired?

Skitter, merely scatter
the mice
who smile with bared teeth
as sanctified predators

All you need be
is awake –
Merely mouse,
has the moon bled through
the cold walls of your room?

Merely mouse,
wake up, wake up
before it’s too soon
