unheard — 5

beneath the arch
of vines and branches,
settled, twisted innocence,
and thoughts unheard until this time,
as she examined everything
that she thought she
had figured out.

within the garden,
ridding of old toxins,
breathing a new and different air,
expanding into a freedom never dreamed of:
who is the other, this parasite,
who drained her of her
power, before, now
powerless?
