Your body is a cage / your body is a launch pad: both

Into the dream
the
living dream
the
lucid dream
the
most common dream
in which

you are
falling

you pass
through

traversing state
through state
obliterating boundaries. Your mother
would be proud of you

the way you cannot be
kept in a box
much like how you
are trapped in your own body

She might say, There is
an essence of spirit about
my child, unable to be
held down, in a world
where

it is so important
to the world
for people to be held
down, oppressed, and silenced

She would
point at you effortlessly balancing
tightropes between
liminal

and boundless spaces
illuminated from beneath and above
and she would say,
My child?
