“Tethered” by Sarette Danae

His is a lariat love, beginning with a wobble
As it starts to unwind. Then stretching fast
Into a wide-spreading circle, swinging wild,
Arcing high, landing without warning,
Just a thump and a cinch.

Sarette Danae is a nomadic writer who enjoys a good fork in the road or turn of phrase; she’s currently searching for her muse, as well as a cure for fernweh.
