Please, World



Be biddable, he told the world.
Be willing to accommodate
my impulses, my whims.
Be for me, larger than I am
so I have somewhere to explore,
something to grow into,
more than me so I have things
to discover, older than me
so I have stories.  Be better
than I am so I can measure myself,
and worse, so I can live with myself.
Be my whole world
so that I may imagine you only
the smallest part of what I've imagined.
