Isolation

Wed 3rd Feb 2016









This cell is

a forest

contained by

a prison

shadows are
incubated

in a spray of

roots,


a mesh

of sleek bars,

cloaking half
the world

in darkness


here

the infected

converse with

their sepsis



but the mind

cannot be
quarantined


draw your nails

across the
partition

and brick dust

falls as
leaves;

a memory

of winter
