Under the wall
Take me to
where my heart is sunken
deep into the land
stepped on, kicked, trampled, thought
to the place where people don’t know that
it is even there,
supporting their weight.
Let me love them anyway.
i am not divided from myself
let me feel the ache of the person
struggling to keep alive at the hands of another person
and under a mechanized system
designed to grind her back into stardust
mine is the same body and breath
that give her
material right to be, to exist.
