Something Big


what is the biggest thing you know? asks the mouse

thought, says the child it fills my whole day

what colour is it? asks the mouse

the child has to think it’s bumpy like the moon and

at its edges are my eyelashes

the mouse is impressed

can a mouse fit thought in a tiny burrow?

the child smiles

of course! just fold it up, soft as pillow cases,

and tuck it under your head at night.

wonderful says the mouse my children

will never be hungry again
