I am

I am display screen winking and uncertain into blackness
I am roots, a constant division, I am in search
Of minerals.
I am caffeine in your bloodstream
The absence of gravity on your eyelids
I am the flame that your toes shrink away from.
Do not
Ignore me.I am smashed screen leaking electric rainbows from sharp edges
I am soles that bleed rivers onto dusty ground
The plant that sways above me rots, cells starved, search futile.
I am a stagnant river city, corrugated roofs clinging to a mountainside
Tongue sits heavily on jaw, dormant.
I am dying.
I am trying.
The door of your conscience is welded shut.
I am water down the plug hole.

I was.
