the light gets in.

somebody left the gate open.

can’t you see? they’ve all been saying.

it’s. right. there.

that open gate.

but this girl, she don’t see.

she can’t see.

she hears them shouting at her,

something about an open gate,

and wings and keys and flying

but she’s still trying to stand on her own two feet

so why all these words about wings

and open gates

when all she can see is the walls.

she gave up on looking for the cracks long ago

but somehow

the light still gets in

there must be a way
