Cage


I am kept in a cage of sunlight, ribbed in shadow
The sun is blinding me, but I am warm
There is a girl across from me
Red head.
Her cage is shadows
I wonder if she's
Cold

They tell me to
'Think about it.'
Like I'll ever give
In

There's a banging
Someone's trying to escape
It's useless. I've tried it
Before

My cage is number 924
A perfect view
Of the EXIT sign
Ironic
And the trees
Outside
Also Ironic

There's a square on the floor
Maybe it's a trap
Door
To get me out of here
Goes to Neverland
Doesn't matter.
I'll never get
There.

If I reach through the shadowy bars
I can grab the dark vermillion
Yarn
On the tiled, speckled
Floor
Maybe I can devise an escape
Probably
Not.

Pat, pat, pat, pat
People walking by
People who are
Free.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
