True North

Feigning reentry

from places I’ve wandered

Destiny challenged

the status-quo damns


Feigning reentry

from freedom unhindered

Life but a journey

its trappings to ban


Feigning reentry

its price was my freedom

The given agenda

new death to the dream


Feigning reentry

refusal my mantra

Staying in transit

—new rivers unstreamed


(The New Room: March, 2023)
