Comments about Susan Adams
Escape The Beloved Country
The foetal curve
is a question mark
we revert to
not a haven for a life
lying curled on our dark side
Cry the national anthems
Hiding from the outside
the inside of ourselves
escape is not a plan
in this State of drugged control
There are no light switches
in this suck-thumb-bare-room
loose skin is a soap polished shroud
the wall a full stop at the end
Breathe me alive
brand me to struggle
make me scream with honest air
let me out
