Trapped in My Own Head

"For a man's mind           a magic song"
from a Copper Eskimo ancient poem


It is in the mind I make
the mistake. Tangled
like the hair
of beasts my thoughts
repeat and repeat.
It is in the mind I make
any progress.
I think I can open the door
today. I think
I can let the sun in. It is
in the mind,
this desire, this sunlight.
