that second part:

I am like a table
that eats its own legs off
because it’s fallen
in love with the floor.

is one of the most brutal, playful, beautiful stanzas ever written.

i am like a table
with legs and a top
off of which people eat
because they need to

i am like a stanza
i am like a dog
or frank sinatra
i have worn things

can i come to your house?
if i do can i say bye when i leave?
then can i come back some other time?
and can i come back again another time after that?
