The Orbit

The orbit.

You drew  a  circle,  the cute
geometry, around you ,
an orbit permitted /forbidden

for a foregone specificity.
Made it large enough that
you  weren’t out of it,  pulled  

or not,  by the old gravity  
that  seizes the ever  raw  soul .
You went about  fooling with

the geodesies of here
and  its forms  of  acceptance in 
another there , encountering 

nothing that  you  would   
ever make a  compact  with.
A  random  peaceableness

perhaps  on a loose day
just before it  breaks  into a spell
of  footloose this and that  , 

heart  punching  buttons  
calling  moral police to march
into  a mere mail box

and  you in the witness box
inside the circle you drew    
a square peg in a round orbit.
