Crock Of Earth (Poem)

clinging onto a jar of fresh dirt
half filled to the top with new earth
from inside a worm inches his way
blindly sliding against his glassy cage

twisting, narrowly moving around
seeking a reprieve to unsoiled ground
held captive in the world within
desperately wishing the jar to be opened
