I AM SMALL. I AM WEIGHTLESS. I AM PITCH BLACK. I AM ENDLESS. I AM 5 FOOT 9 AND LISTLESS. I AM TINY. SLEEP AND WAKE LESS. I AM 10 MORE PILLS FROM NOTHINGNESS, AND ONE MORE STEP FROM SACRIFICE. I AM COOL AND CALM AND EFFERVESCENT. I AM 3 YARDS OF SMILE AND PLEASANTNESS. I AM EMPTY. I AM LOST. I CAST SHADOWS. I GLUE LOCKS. I BUY TIME. I’M SHUT IN. I AM FINE. I’LL BE FINE. I CAN BREATHE. THERE’S A CHANCE I’LL NEVER LEAVE.  SO I STAY SO SMALL AND ENDLESS. I STAY 5 FOOT 9 AND LISTLESS. I STAY PITCH AND BLACK AND SLEEPLESS. AND I LIVE AND LIVE AND LIVE.
