The Spiral

Draw-in the spiral
Tight as any spring
And hold it tight in -
Living being hold
In the spiral not
Let it unthread and
Spool into aimlessness
And dread - there is
The insipid movement
And there is the taut
Spring sprung and
Holding ready to
Spring out and back, to
Form unform  reform
And attack.
