Return

Effort
feels heavy and forced, a
contract
for conversations and expectations
barricading all
retreats.

Action,
taking action and trying to be, to go
again,
requires effort to rewind all
retreats.

It
prepares to fight, to defend the
walls
against our returns and all our
retreats.

Me?
I am merely the
it
of effort’s actions in retreats and all
returns.
