passport.

a document
one of the few
pocket sized booklets
with a
bad photograph

a proof
of
your humanity
an illusion of
identity
courtesy of
the goddamned
good for nothing
state
something that exists
solely
to appease
our inflated sense of
ego
as a species

a document
to cross
lines
that are found
only on
a map

lines
that shape
the bloody idea of
nation
a cold blooded murderer
the second best
there is
