As I sat down
I affronted the one
who regarded me from the wall of glass
And I said to the creature
Why -it won't do- you slouch
Worse, worse, much worse than me.
I lifted up my arms and worocked myself around
like into a leadbottombabooschka doll
With every so many turns,
'the next Babooshka' emerged,
the taller than the last
Until -at last at last,
I faced a creature much more,
so much as I had been myself in the past.
