Babe in the Woods

I had a lion cub once
I loved him with heart
I sewed him pants: yellow bright
We took a walk.
A full cycle back
And the seams fell apart.
I had a baby lion once
Cute and cuddly
With moons for eyes
And cotton feet
He wore a woolen jacket
And snuggled with me
A full cycle passed
And he bared his claws-
He terrified.
I was a cub once
A babe in the woods
I suckled my thumb
Clutched at my mom’s skirts
I held the sun captive
But after the cycle was done
I had shed my skin
