Why Do This at All, When I Could Do So Many Other Things?

Because to show you how I feel
or what I see and how I get along in life
and who lives in my head (after I make them),
all the places where I am double-jointed
just like you and different from you,
where I creak and where I don’t.
All the water I ever drank is in my fingers,
and if I show you, you can swim.
