Schrödinger’s Cat - Nov PAD day 1

Schrödinger’s Cat

She understands that.
Knows
she’ll never
really know
if she’s made
the right decision
(once she decides
to stay or
go.)

Trapped
in a prison
of her own making
she’s taking off –
packs her bags, lies
in wait; vacillates,
uncertain
why she hesitates,
cogitates, ruminates.

Can’t tell you
why she still abides.
Can’t help but sigh
and wonder:
when her box
is finally opened up
will she
be dead or alive
inside?
