womb
half
that

stay
hung
back
like
bats
lurk
amid
cold
dark
deep
cave
away
from
sun’s
fire
ball
beam
rays
burn
only
love
noct
urne
with
soft
full
moon
glow
long
till
dawn
come
then
turn
back
exit
sky’s
vast
spew
sunk
into
dirt
down
hole
like
coal
mine
then
zone
goes
side
ways
hide
seek
find
done
been
said
done
been
read
gone
over
this
none
left
told
late
news
like
echo
echo
echo
goon

runs
take
nice
easy
slow
pace
don’t
want
hurt
your
self
roll
rock
high
upon
hill
when
atop
apex
it’ll
ouch
slip
from
hand
gets
dumb
mass

drop
then
fall
back
down
ward
onto
flat
base
game

soul
born
from
open
lids

eyes
make
self
