Reins

from by Anna Vogelzang

/

about

can you stop yourself
under water
under pressure

can you see yourself
as a picture
as a spectre

would you trust yourself
trust your body
trust your longing

do you hear yourself
hear the time bomb
hear it head strong

under the water, under the weight
down in the dark, craving the day
after the monsters, after the prey
morning stars arise
as you reclaim your stolen reins

will you find yourself
find your mooring
find your footing

can you fix yourself
reckless hammer
precious metal

could you leave yourself
on the shoreline
on the funeral pyre

would you prove yourself
ever worthy
ever to be seen

under the water, under the weight
down in the dark, mourning the day
after the monsters, after the prey
morning stars alight
as you reclaim your stolen reins

can you give yourself
a little life raft
a little launching pad
