Down & Out

Turn the lights out
on this madness,
I cannot understand it
on the ground
looking up
all I can see is the sky,
a hole,
swallowing my world
whole, within it
everything is
different on
the ground
it’s all so much larger
than it needs to be,
it seems, so
insurmountable
from the ground
without that hand
to help you up.
