Learning to Float

I am a decentered circle

my weight shifts and shifts

and falls and falls


I am trapped by my instability

weighed down by my weight


How much a star must suffer


No loose ends swim in my waters

I tie them all to my belt

dragging the load of certainly with me


Always upstream

never with the current

that is my path

my determination

my choice


My will is strong

but its content



All I have is drive

but I channel it

into empty ravines


Remembrance and regrets

they too are part of venture


Life is too overwhelming

as that a single voice

could ever capture it all


I love you precisely because

you possess a strong commitment

to challenging paradigms of oppression


Float untied

The knot’s a noose


Should I fly

yes I should

I should sore like an eagle

but there is no flight

no reaching up high

without learning to float


Which birds are stupid

enough to fly carelessly

their flight is perilous

but skill carves out

a space for safety
