shapes

she took my
crease
and smoothed it out
but some creases
are old
so they eventually

reshape

i have been
bent
into the shape
of a crane
so many times
i have to fight the urge
to sweep low
across the water
as the sun rises
to the east

once
i was a foil swan
to be paraded
delicately reflective
but to remain
stoically aloof

half the creases
are to shapes
that didn’t stick
horror show recreations
of nightmare hellbeasts

but she likes
the smoothed out
original version
even if that one is
the least familiar
shape of all

but i wouldn’t mind
if she
bent me
a little
i will stretch first
see what new shapes
we can make
