Day Four: A Story in a Single Image


Oh to be there and not here
to be him and not me
To be suspended above
a great pool, to be free
of all that demands
my close scrutiny.

Somewhere warm, far away
perhaps close to the sea
To be there in a place
where I, an escapee
can savour the joys
of my own Liberty.
