Please come near me, will you hold me? I am leaking so very badly! Will you stop up my holes?
If your answer is, "No, I'm busy!" I will follow you out to the garden. I can smell you from three miles away!
If your answer is, "Get me dirty!" you can stop up my holes so nicely! I won't leak anymore!
But if your answer is, "No, I'm sleepy!" I will stare at your face with longing... I will chew on your face.
And then the night comes like an unfolding, unscented flower... I'll be sent away.
