Close the cage while you’re still
We can’t risk you flying away
In the plains
The seven seas
Too many colours, buzzes, scents
Winds blowing voices
– Who said I wanted to have choices? I want to follow you down this single path? You know I could?
Close your eyes now
Don’t mind us
We’ll put our hands over your ears
And sing you a lullaby.
“Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are…”
When it’s done,
We’ll keep the key
And it will be just like it was before
When she didn’t even know
This cage existed.
