Wrapping – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Your personal boundaries protect the inner core of your identity and your right to Choices.” Gerard Manley Hopkins


From my earliest moments of cogito,
the eye of my I, O aye,
I learned to wrap myself against the
cold of an encroaching world and 
the desires of others, while yet 
offering little gaps and holes through
which the mew of you, O true
can slip through.
