The key to infinity

lies at the bottom of a dirt hill

one that you refuse to roll down

afraid of the earth that gave birth to you

too scared to ruin your designer shoes


Hit me like a train

and display me on the track

let the world see what’s inside of me


If they try to scrape the blood away

I will leave a permanent stain

It’ll bury itself into the earth

and remain long after

the train no longer requires tracks to take us places


Crawl into the spaces between my cells

where I have been hiding from them

For I am the blue between white and red

deprived of oxygen and left for dead


Cut into my skin so that I may escape

and breathe the air that is meant for me
