I also saw the electric chair
waiting. Get yourself electrocuted
first, than I let you go to the light,
a voice in my head sneered.
I'm tired, I'm tired, I heard my
dry lips mumble. Let go of me,
let go of me, I heard my heart
shout in a vacuum.
Yet I still breathe. One inhale

Yet I still blink, both eyes closed
one instant and opened thereafter.
If I hold my breath, if I close my eyes,
will it help me forget?
Will it help me sail through
this green mile and the electric chair
till the day I reach the light?
