sinker

I carry it with me wherever I go

this heavy, heavy thing

that indebts every breath

demands every waking second

withholds sleep and

denies me all rest

I carry it with me into the quiet places

into the busy peopled places

into the secret places all my own

wherever I am, there it is

this heavy leaden sinker

at the bottom of my heart
