The Escape - (For Booger) - Poem by Anastasia Clarke

For one moment you were free
your ink-dropp eyes squinting
in the pure light of the sun
you turned your head, bewildered at the sight of this world
where the absence of lightbulbs
makes everything glow
you were hoping for amnesty, I think
before I took you into my arms
and brought you back inside
