you’re big
like me
when I was little I had dreams before I fell asleep 
that I was giant 
and my room would shrink 
while my body swelled
a giant in a little bed

every man I’ve ever met made me feel small 
like a little ant 
like a lady bug
found on a plant indoors in the winter
beautifully resilient and bound to die

for the first time
fit my swelling

you are big like me 
you come by it honestly
you do not need me to shrink
to feel safe
like a man

you need me instead to be swollen
full up of myself 
fattened up with my glory you glut on my glory the fullest version
of myself
all of me 
you want all, all of it
want it all 
all of me
you want all
all of it 
all of me
you want me 
you want me
you want me 
you want me
me me me me me me me me me
