I’m a city rat. I need cheese
I make my house out of
Popsicle sticks and old magazines
But what I really really need
is you to let me be – with Thee indeed

Wooden wall warped and wet
Walk on wire it wiggles while I walk
Welp at the whittled wire saying,
“Wow. Whittled AND wet!!” – ZOT!
It brings me to a higher place up above
See you standing there
through a whole near the stove

Marry me. Feed me and care for me
Put me in a cage in your house

When you’re sleeping I sleep with you
I share your breath when you breathe
When you shower I sit and watch you
When you leave from your mug I drink

I can taste you in the swept crumbs
When you speak I hear it sung
In your cage we could be happy
We could live forever in love
