run rat run

the rat has proved its maze
run it forth and back
in all conditions set
by white coated hearts, black
 ‘objective’ in their lack
of feeling for others as another
now again she’s reached an end
nowhere left to go
all turns turned
except that even as she runs
its not about the turns
her imagination
has passed beyond walls
not quite a caged big cat
more domestic
translating species
growing into a skin of freedom
shape worked on
down these tortured tracks
magic rat become a person
