Tied Down

Tied down
like a fresh shot buck
to a roof rack
(future meals for a family)

Or like a tarp
over a roof under repair
Coverage against
sudden blue sky wind storms

What looks like carnage
or restraint
is sometimes
just protection

as a future sometimes requires
a good rope to bind its past
tightly down until it is at last
transformed into present
