"you took your life to relive it — to be born again right at birth —
to be reformed from the violence but now it’s worse.
your parents feed you through the grating.
outside you hear goblins laughing.
you lie stalk still as their hands reach inside
and when the grate is shut you rise, approach the door, and grab a bite.
it is your right to try for a piece of mind any time you can.
it is your right to take your life and be reborn again as many times as you can stand.
‘til cold food for the blind turns into bright white light
and you can feel your tiny hands are glowing.
it is your right to try again."
