i know why the caged bird tweets

i greet the day as you welcome the night
the one where you live
and hide
the one where you die
and type

they have ways of making you talk
and of making you silent
they will take what they can
but they can’t have it all

they hate us for our freedom
but they love us for our greed

i wish my coordinates could make you invisible
i wish they could make me see
i wish that by folding this map
that i hold in my hands
i could bring you closer
