down angle photography of red clouds and blue sky

the snares on the line are many and

rarely if ever humane—

if you fall into one, do not pause

to negotiate, or tell yourself the story

(over and over)

why someone might have set this trap

in the first place, this is not the time

to put yourself in anyone

else’s shoes; free yourself


This poem appears in ROSES IN WINTER. Available on Amazon or my Bookstall.
