'At the Bottom of the Tiny Bottle' by Yuu Ikeda

She is looking up at the blue petals,

at the bottom of the tiny bottle.

She imagines that

these petals fall on her

and celebrate her freedom

by soaring around her.

The invisible shape of the bottle

keeps her from running around

like a child does.

The inhumane wall of the bottle

never allows her to stretch

like a child does.

But she doesn't stop imagining that

these blue hopes flow into the tiny bottle

and soak into her veins

to release her from the transparent Hell.

All Rights. Yuu Ikeda.
