Control

by Annette Snyckers

Keep your thoughts
well fed and watered,
keep them in the yard,
but walk them often.
Keep them on a leash
lest they rush too fast.
Keep them in at night
so they’ll not roam
in desolate, dark places
and drag home bloated images.

But, don’t keep them tied.
Take off their collars,
let them be –
Within these walls
they may run free.
