On Attachment

Like a fish 
with a hook in its mouth
I thrash around internally
wanting to lose the metallic tug 
of that twisted awful hook and
I am thrumming
with a certain fierceness
and an unmistakable longing 
to be absolutely free 
and unencumbered
by 
want 
desire 
wish

and I try to let go of the memory
of the sweet darling angle
of the light through the water
as I swam unencumbered
by the pull of my own
want
desire
wish
and yet here I am,

despite my endless attempts
to be non-attached,
attached to the longing 
to be unhooked
to be moving freely
to be doing something other
anything other
somewhere other

than this.
