Squirrel Boy, You Are My Toy

by Kirsty Logan

you're tight, but

there are lines between a schoolboy

and listening. it's not


winter, so unbury yourself

from the silt and give me some seal love.

listen, squirrel boy,


I've got a man

like fondue, a man in black shoes. I don't want

to know about


your deepest darkest.

you wrecked someone else's garden to bring me flowers

but you still


make me melt

from the knees
