I am a hammock hung in a small garden
between two wooden poles
erected at opposite ends.

I blush all orange and grey,
tightly hugging two metal hooks,
rubbing them with black rope.

I swing back and forth
gently (or not),
sometimes nauseatingly.

I get wet with the rain
or with water from the hose.
I like brushing against the potted mint.

Or sage.
I can be tricky to get into,
even trickier to get out of.

I am a cocoon
padded with blankets and cushions,
cozy and stifling.

Come in to me,
be in the sun and out of the sun.
Sway.
