How it Happened

the severed walls
whispered to eachother
four faces debating
their imprisonment

the clock ticked urgent analysis
time haunted you
and made you believe
you would never be fast enough
to contain it all

the static from the television
replaced the voices in your head
as you concentrated on the colours

you saw yourself
opening a window
feeling for rain
and checking the temperature
you don’t remember it
but, you jumped
falling through air
and into the ground

you laughed all the way down
