One little hair

When I peeled off your Lidl nappy
I saw one of my beard hairs
stuck to your right bum cheek.
I wonder what other bits
will fall off me and cling to you.
A dislike of coconut?
A love of the WWE Intercontinental Championship?
My fear of false imprisonment?
My inability to share a Share Bag of Doritos?
Maybe you’ll bite your fingernails.
Maybe you’ll have to scratch your left ear
immediately after you’ve scratched your
right ear in order to feel balanced.
Or maybe you’ll be you’re own person.
Fingers crossed.
