Ariel

I’ve been thinking recently about what happened to Ariel, after his release.

I am

wind, fire,

earth, water


And smoke.


I was

What I was

And might have been

Until you held me,

And then broke your wand.


You said I was

An elemental.


Will I go somewhere now?


I am everything I want to be

Now.


Except how I was,

When I knew you.


Prospero has died,

But I persist

In that magic isle.


I remember when he would say

"One more thing,

And then you are free.’


And then I could hope.


But where did he think

I could go?


Beyond earth?

Beyond wind?

Beyond fire?

Beyond air?


Maybe he thought

As a sprite

I could go anywhere.


But where does

Someone like him,

Destined to die

With only books


Expect me to go?


To Heaven?

What is that?


To freedom?

What is that?


To dirt,

Wind,

Fire,

Water.


I am an

Elemental.

And I can’t

Escape that.


Is Roach Pacquiao’s Prospero? Was Wolfe Kirkland’s Prospero? What boxers have been Ariel’s to Prosperos?
