In chains


Gary Cummiskey - 2011-06-01

In chains

I leap down from the building
into the fire. 
The women stand
with their breasts in chains.
I can’t get to collect my curry supper.

The owl is going insane.
This is a night of anxiety.
I’m on a flying island.
I’m singing, singing, but nobody hears.
A glove is stuck in my throat.
