Kerri Shying R - # 20 Crime Lords Three - can't

Crime Lords



allow myself    a day
in bed    staving off
the guilt    of

anger   grinds the
tops off more
than teeth    it

isn’t really tenderness
the hand   that cups
my head  still

it’s more than
what I’ve

ducked down
arrested  at the
vehicle door 

free is

antonymic     in that
barred space
 safe from tyrants

 speak and sleep
I am

  1. Another one that rubs the salt, a tragic escape to the other side of bars. It's biting stuff, pruned and tight yet still some kind of honey. Well done!
