1. Kairos


woke up this morning
something different in her heart
she couldn't fake it anymore
she came apart

we all need it

she drove her car into the pool
she left a crack
she called her boss and told him,
"I ain't coming back!"

we all need it

we go to school
we go as slaves
we go to work
go to our graves

she bought a ticket
to a place she'd never been
closed her eyes and whispered,
"Remember when?"
