Fear city

I lived in fear city
but I didn’t know the name
every day I asked people
but they were afraid to say
or they didn’t know
fear city is both shrinking
and growing every minute
you shrink it grows
you can’t find it on any map
but you are already there
when it starts to shrink
the air is hard to breathe
it gets both thicker and thinner
at the edge of time
the molecules of free air
become so far apart
and the foggy drops of fear
can just swallow you whole
it’s hard to breathe in fear city
