Trapped Poem

Two Poems
by Joan Pond 

How I envied those girls.
You know,
the ones with ankle bracelets
and dates from out of town.
They knew things
so far from my reach.
they say they envied me.
But how I wanted me,
to be them.


I still have the GE fan from my job.
You know,
the nine to five that wouldn't quit
until the day I died.
Well the company went under,
but the fan still works.
At least one of us is functional,
circulating wind and broadly oscillating.
at variable speeds,
I watch the plastic blades
encased in a metal cage.
who is really trapped?
