if i ask you

Location

 

how do you tell someone that
sometimes you think that
you were born backwards,
that your paper-cut
fingertips
are tracing endless circles
in this, the sea of awakening?
that sometimes you think it’s better
to never ask why
your heart is beating?
if i ask you to,
will you tell me there is more to life
than waking up?
