i want to go home

[pressure]

i am tiny pieces taped together

so tight, too tight, stress-hugging my knees

and i feel no older than eight,

the same innocent naivety at my centre

the tension pushes me in and pulls me out

so i am all edges and no rest

[collapse]

    So much yes in that one line, it makes me crazy. And the first and last lines make such a great blanket for the tension inside them, especially when paired with the bracketed words that enclose the piece. Beautifully done!
