Sign Painter Pop Art Gallery in Taylor, Texas


I am warm

there is light above me

forcing my hand

through dirt and stone

taking all of my strength

the excitement pushes me further

replenishing me

the more I linger

the shorter my breath

anxious to find it

wanting to laugh and scream

one hand pushes further

encouraged by warmth

soil between fingers

strength and movement of arms

a finger is free

making way for the hand

the warmth is sharp here

I can feel it now

pushing further

past forearm and elbow

body rising

unknown strength

flowing into shoulders

rocks shifting

uncoiling the fetus

my face leading the rest

there is a brightness

bouncing off my eyelids

gasping for air

screams racing to disappear

shoulders rising

dirt tumbles

I am standing

drenched in sunshine

feeling wind
