Empathy Trap

Magnus can’t run wild
since he bolts
once given liberty
of tether.

I identify with his struggle
as he pulls with vigor
to center the fray
in frolic

only to get denied
with a plaintive yank
at the limit of
influence,

placated and sequestered
in a panting pen
without regard for
dignity.

As I unclasp his
durable chain,
he licks my face
then jets off.
