You are a part of the earth,
and the earth is a part of you.

to the ground, perhaps then you will
remember that this land does not belong

and then another person fell
and suddenly I was lying in the middle of an impromptu fainting mob and a lot of people were shouting
and the girl who’d originally fallen looked so fucking happy
