comfort

there’s a line. always
a line. sometimes
it’s a wall to lean on.

others a string to pull on.
go on. let’s watch
everything
fall.

some see a brick wall
to push against.
but I am tired.

sometimes the sky
keeps the darkness out.
out there, outside, beyond
the outline of the world we know.
but the same divide keeps it all inside.

it’s the pith bright behind the peel,
a bitter side to the fruit
getting stuck between teeth.

but I’m still biting.
tearing plasters off to feel
where that line was first drawn.
