If I am repaired, can we meet again for the first time, in all of the places I have feared to go, and then, again, in all of the places I will have forgotten, if I am repaired?

                                      'Number Three'
                                         
                                         In close quarters
                                                       I guard my portions,
                                                       nibble,
                                                       mind the workings of my jaw,
                                                       wish for walls,
                                                       a fan,
                                                       some hullaballoo.
                                                       
                                                       Do you?
