Etched In Stone

  1. Gray Matter
    Gray Matter
    By Allison Rothrock

Warp, contort, to fit in place
Boxed-in-thinkers fill the space

Fallen angels clip their wings
Scared to move and split the seams

Doctors, lawyers born in classes
Prophets, options not for masses

Call this prison destiny
Cascading coffin blessed for me

Nothing left but silent futures
Thumping breaths and eyelid sutures

Lifeless lives of chains and pressure
Rather hide than face the weather

Bound by rules and laws and strictures
Only left to color pictures

Fill in blanks made just for you
But I will not submit to that
