Now, HERE, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!

These papers smell of futility,
layer upon layer of sediment.
My back feels watched, vulnerable.
Walls enclose but don't protect..
The doom-riddled sky
has shut its door,
as I shut my eyes.
