Am I entitled to the endless
journey of moments that comprise
Knotted and forlorn I've often
felt tied to the dock but unaware
of my tether.
Seconds, minutes, hours scatter
throughout my day and I barely
What happens when you cut the rope?
Do I float free? Do I become unknotted?
Can you become unknotted?
Yes. I decide and jump off.
Portions of my being miss the dock
and its illusionary safety. I let the water
carry me away.
No longer flailing
and treading to stay afloat. I go
under. But only for a moment. All
of a sudden I am alive and
The resurfacing experience
I can feel. Seconds, minutes,
hours scatter around me. Now in full
I notice EVERYTHING.
