Emily Dickinson - What if I say I shall not wait!

What if I say I shall not wait!
What if I burst the fleshly Gate --
And pass escaped -- to thee!

What if I file this Mortal -- off --
See where it hurt me -- That's enough --
And wade in Liberty!

They cannot take me -- any more!
Dungeons can call -- and Guns implore
Unmeaning -- now -- to me --

As laughter -- was -- an hour ago --
Or Laces -- or a Travelling Show --
Or who died -- yesterday!
