I think at some point

you have earned the right to say

I know already because you lived it

without acquiescing to

authority so I asked

to see it first:

the river’s mouth,

even though they said

I’d never make it.

I never said I didn’t

deserve it–

just that I could outrun it

if they gave it.

“the alligator” or “uranus in sagittarius”
