View from the Stalls

No one cries for freedom
     more than the free
For they only feel the branch
     that holds them to the tree
Not their flight
     against the sky.

She can't see
     the currents that guide her,
How easily they came
     from her mind,
Which is not, of course,
     her mind at all.

That would be the branch,
     stiff and willful,
Despite the bending
     of the laws,
That there is something here,
     anything at all.
