When the trap snaps
and the pain shoots upward
through the leg,
does the brain react
with regret or despair?

Do the toes retrace the steps
with a fancy move that postpones
danger?  Does the mind's eye see
what preoccupation missed?

When does the axis pivot
from Calvin to Arminius,
acceptance to resolve?
When does the mouth begin
to chew its way through
to the bone of freedom?
