Bellybutton Lint

An itch crosses my belly
Hand scratches
Soothing
Finger catches my navel
Soft within
Rolling across flesh
Cleaning
Bellybutton lint
I remember the squeal of joy
When you discovered
My little lint factory
Empty
Freshly cleaned
Just hours before
Giggling
Sweater fuzz balls were collected
Homemade pile of lint
Placed in my button
A grand experiment
To see if it’ll remain
Until morning
