Now my arms swing when I walk
with this thin film
that separates me from the world
takes the load off
I am worried
what have I shed?
this dislocation from everything in my life
knight’s move existence
hanging off at a right angle
seeing fine, but what have I shed?
If that connection is no longer there
is there a desire that goes along with that?
A desire to be a part of things
that pushes you
ingratiate and integrate
but when all that’s gone
and all that you want is yourself
can you still reach out?
Does it take learning
just a monster
a monster with nowhere to be
