trapped

ones and zeroes
scrolls and taps
building blocks
hidden behind walls
or in front of them
where the eyes can’t convey the horror
of the moments lost
because they too
are deaf to the screams
(as they naturally should be)

nobody has been able to explain
(convincingly)
the benefit of commanding the body to need more

in most instances
there’s an -ism
(“What is it when a person drinks too much?”)
attached to such things
a conventional wisdom that too much
is less than ideal

but when there’s an escape
an agreed upon middle ground
then comfort seeps in
and suddenly the walls disappear
but they haven’t gone
not really
