'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'
― Virginia Woolf, 'A Room of One's Own'


because when i woke
i had broken.

my mind had given up hope; it said -
"crawl back under the covers -
shut your eyes, child."

my heart filled with longing
persevered.
it bewitched my fingers -
they crept up and out, found the phone, pushed send -

tongue-tied over three words.

my mind laughed and scorned -
"oh, the ambition."
