narrow down
the line
speed up
and do not
get caught

first cut
it hurts
second cut
it bursts

narrow down
the line
quickly as
the travel
of the light

third cut
it speaks
fourth cut
it bends

narrow down
the line
narrow narrow
down through
the paper

  1. “Narrow down the paper lines” Very good wordplay.

  2. “second cut it burst”; something clicked with me there, beautiful
