RESISTANCE

[2015]


I am floating in a white room
Pushed back into the corner
Desperate for escape

I ran into resistance
A brick wall – a concrete blockade
And I furiously attacked it

I pushed
I fired
I bombed those bricks –
 
I grabbed
My earth with brazen fists
I dug down low
I dug a hole as far as I could 

Twisting the world into dark carnivals
From above
Below
The sides
Endless mazes

After months of resistance
It felt like isolation –

So I stood
Exhausted from my resistance

And the brick remained
unchanged
