Poetry: Prison Origami by Zahra Akbar
We LOVE submissions, especially when they are this fantastic!
Folding, unfolding nightmares
and visions intruding through ceiling cracks
wrapping, unwrapping the wistful layers
of soul, creased that lies in wrinkled hands
Damp walls emanate regrets, and we inhale!
eyeballs rivet the shapes; planes, birds and winged angels and devils
from lips as we lick hubris, stale
bigger the origami then grows and grows,
until we become tiny people, tiny baits,
awaiting it to swallow us, along with our dreams and woes.Folding, unfolding nightmares...wrapping, unwrapping the wistful layers #poetry #amreading @zeeakbr Click To Tweet
