Poetry 3 – 2020

Pulled and Pounded at every angle.

Take a breath, press forward, chains

Thick heavy iron

Rattle and drag at happiness

Every exhausting encounter – YANK

Every step forward followed by hundreds of steps backwards – YANK

Every choice to remove freedoms – YANK

All goodness ripped through the back.

Natural smiles fade – fake smiles replace

Grey consumes until nothing left

Numbing.

Numb.
