When I was little
I thought that
a tiny man
was kept
in our
radio.

I had a white fur bonnet
with pom poms on
that I really hated
but I probably
looked very
pretty.

Most of the week I’ve looked
like this with my hood up
and my energy low.
Not as a nun.

Sometimes
the hood helps
my head not throb.
Mostly, it hides my hair.

My husband might
take me cycling
with a special
wheelchair
bike.

There
will be many
flies in my teeth
if he goes really fast.
