Box

When you’re stuck in a box

and the walls are thin but

breaking one would make

the whole thing collapse


and those remaining in it

would suffer needlessly,

as all who suffer certainly do,

despite what jerks say,


then I think the thing to do

is to figure out how escaping

and keeping it intact despite

your wanting to burn it up


is an art that few can master

and fewer can imagine

but I’m starting to think

in my way that we must try.
