Confinment I and II

Confinement I
Confinement II
Rebecca Strain
Found yarns woven and braided, accumulated paper for 9 months

A decision,
Trapped, stuck, pinned,
Time to run away
Leave it behind, forget

I cried just once,
The day before I went
And then for 3 months
Healed and breathed

I swam and ran
Danced and played
Ate and drank and joked
And saw beauty

Then back, back to it all,
Carpets and bills
And meals from frozen
Like nothing had happened

The beach, the waves
The freedom
Remake my escape
Or live with confinement
