painted into a corner 2 (Jeltje Fanoy # 14)


painted into a corner  not letting go  it’s a form of torture  without a name  and holding on  not letting anyone down  th humbled shoulders  and driven there  th language hurts  th crying eyes  someone holding on  to something 

 

painted into a corner 

not letting go

 

it’s a form of torture 

without a name  and holding on

 

not letting  anyone down  th humbled shoulders

 

and driven there  th language hurts

th crying eyes

 

someone holding on to something

  2. I love the shape of the poem too, and that central moving harrowed image, 'painted into a corner.'

    1. it's quite intense working with it, I think, because it's already a metaphor!
