I keep trying to be

instead of being.


Looking for a place to fit into

instead of molding the world to my form,

stretching into it

like muscles within fascia,

elastic and smooth.


The box is beckoning,

so tempting with its sharp corners and restraints.


Don't you want to join the rest of us?


I see you all waving at me, smiling,

tiny figures at the end of a long tunnel

impossibly narrow

my shoulders unable to fit.


I wave back and move on,

hoping you don't resent me

or worse, pity me,

as I continue walking in the dark.
