Break

My whole life I’ve been a dust magnet,
suffocating as I drowned in the particles.
My face fused with the light of the monitor,
and my mind begged for an earthquake.

And I got it.

A scorching asteroid
crashing right in my chest,
scattering the light and dust.

I got what I wanted—
a tremor to break me
away from the screen.

But I’m not sure I like
where the pieces landed.
