concrete and walls/

©2022 Michael Raven

trapped inside
memories and concrete
walls defining my
exact little box

i placed some myself
you know

others, well, you
slathered mortar thick
with glee as towers
touching clouds
encircled so high
rapunzel grew faint
at tossing her hair down

i will be
naked in the wood
forgetting naked, i
howling at the moon

[
this is where i put
"crossing the night sky"
but won't just to
piss.
you.
off.
]

...and becoming
the animal accused
teeth bared and bloody
unshackled
untamed
unwalled

the place where
the black feathers
tumble
down
