Do I want the tick, or does the tick want me?
Do I earn it, or do I run from it?
If I run to it and if I sit on it, will it tip me up and suck me in?
Will the sides be so steep that I’ll never return?
Like the tick in the box, will I be irretrievable?
And will I, if I am stuck, angled and stuck, and stuck in a box, stuck in a box and with no
way out, will I?
Will I still be me?
