I don't walk anymore

I can't.

Every step

Every step the pressure is unbearable.

The pain

All too constant.

I have asked of many

And then offew

Please, I begged

Remove this body from this.

This prison.

No one will oblige.

They say "No, thanks."

None brave enough to destroy this

Er. These roots which bear

The tree that houses

A pine beetle

Of infinite regress.
