The slow descent into the earth, the air thickens, the light becomes scarce. The prying eyes of surveillance are blinded, the notifications fall silent. Electric blue turns to earthen green, cold plastic to warm soil. Water trickles towards the core, roots extend through the crevices. The world above converges into a small dot. Only the rhythm of a heartbeat, the release of a bated breath.
