Oubliette: Myth Of Captivity

There is no bottom.
The longer I am here
the more deeply I understand:
bottom is a myth.

Your meager chains and locks
are nothing to me now;
I surrender to them easily,
remember starlight,
sink into my escape.

  1. I read the poem without the photo and found it a bit eerie, but the photo put it all together for me. In some ways, I like it without the photo so that I could imagine more. Really like it both ways though. ~nan
