Mouse


I thought you a pebble
till you trembled
munching on seed
scattered from high
by busy birds

You catch a monster
in tiny eyes
Too late for introductions
and admirations of mini whiskers 
and ears too far away to hear

Had I a badge
A card to flash
Certificate proof
that I too am small
and mean nothing
but to be enthralled
