rings (grounded)

rings (grounded)

when she discovered
she could no longer fly

she turned her back to him
each night & silently cried

nocturnal tears of supplication
about her sudden grounding

fearful surrendering her name
had clipped her secret wings

wondering if that golden band
had anchored her to the earth

how could a man who would never fly
never lose his name begin to understand

her morning steps fell heavy
her eyes swollen—ringed dark

this wife grounded like an angel
snared in the alluring net of "i do"
