Farm life

Back in the barn
and spinning a yarn
but before I self harm
someone closes the door,

everyone wants to get out of it
and we’ll all go because of it
isn’t
this what we’re waiting for?

I’ve done it before
inside the barn and
flush with the floor,
it’s no great shakes
everything breaks with
the dawn
and
then we are born.
