1968 Do Over

If I gave birth
to myself today
would I finally be free of me
and all restrictions placed
in 1968?

Cut the umbilical cord
to the Pope,
and I will run
and laugh
and dance with a life
currently beyond my reach.

If I lived outside
of my head tomorrow
what would become
of my memories made
since 1968?

They would obediently be
the same carcass
that has already abandoned me.
