Prompt 166: Border

Thanks to Gautami Tripathy of Rooted for this week's prompt, borders, and this poem:

in the gaps
you create fences
shouldn't it had been other way round?
who am I voice it aloud
I, who stand at the periphery?
You know I will jump right into it
stand in the midst
speak all I need to

"borders are so passe"
