I got pulled 

lassoed around the neck 

slowly dragged along 

not resisting much, 

at least at first, 

I even crawled closer 

at one point 

but then I lost control 

the crank was turning 

the rope was shortening 

and I was following 

whether I wanted to or not 

no matter how I tugged 

I was going in that direction 

so I surrendered 

palms flat 

eyes closed 

I am never in control 

making decisions 

but never deciding outcomes 

never determining
