Freedom's Imposition

Scissors know our healing does not
Always come from books:

Does...
As the wind does.
Does... arch
As the hand raised over-long.
Does... concentrate
On every pose.
Does... cheat
For the sake of comfort.
Does... define
Both prong and tail.
Does...
The daylights from the living.
Does... assign
A dearth stance
Of which
We are too familiar, cut
From the background

What scrap is
To the stock-piling.
