Dungeon Crawler

Deep in my psyche,
a tricycle fights these
urges to
remove
unnecessary wheels.

Let me fall and be
broken,
independence in
motion,

an incapacitated
zeal.

Allow me the sorrow,
the palettes rage
borrows,

I want to paint
this whole
town
in
red
ink,
succinctly guide all other
ballpoint
colours
to their corresponding exits.

A passionate affair with the
anarchy of
unnumbered pages
has not affected
my
judgement,
nor has twenty hours a day
locked inside
this
dungeon.

My English is as flawed as
your uncompromising laws,
a pox on our home
solemn knock on your chrome-plated
doors that I hear
dripping in the pipes like
rainwater-

every distant
neighbour is
cannon fodder for my
revenge fantasy, every dog
barking down
my basement cell
window only adds to
acrimony

and
the stack of
rain-soaked letters
freedom wrote me from
a beach.

I’m sure if I opened them, they’d
say the sweetest things.

  2. SHEER POETIC BRILLIANCE!!!!

    powerful imagery throughout
    and this being my favourite passage of all:

    “A passionate affair with the

    judgement,

  3. Can’t imagine a more fitting haunting score than this

    “My English is as flawed as
    your uncompromising laws,
    a pox on our home
    solemn knock on your chrome-plated
    doors that I hear
    dripping in the pipes like
    rainwater-”
