Possession

You have stolen my ears and filled my mouth with ash.
My hands and feet are your servants running errands
through shifting labyrinths, according to your whim.

On every cell of my body your name is stamped.
You have buried my feelings in an unmarked grave
beneath the tower. Even the dead don’t go there.
