A crocodile

sometimes I look at myself wondering
what kind of animal I am

would it be such a terrible mistake if I
when you kindly ask me
why I bother so much
why I waste so much time


about what it means to change
so much
every month

would you believe if I tell you
that it doesn’t hurt at all?

I peel myself in the mornings
because every night it is worthy

I peel
because that’s just what I do

so maybe
I am a crocodile
who happens to be a little confused

in this world of numbers
and people that never show who they really are
