tough love

Yes, I’m small, and light. Yes, I look graceful — delicate, even.
Yes, you’re taller. Bigger. Stronger. Yes, you can pick me up, toss me around, pin me down.

But I’m strong too. And flexible, and wriggly.
And determined.
So when we wrestle, I will give you a run for your money.
And the only way you’ll win clean
is if I want you to.

This shape reminds me of a heraldic maunch, minus the pendant part of the pendant sleeve, of course.
