‘The effects in prisons’

in october
from ‘belly of the beast’
i.e. parliament
“cuts”
word wounding
with fear
those vulnerable
as
falling
leaves

“cuts”
knife wielded
in darkness
key in cell
door grinds
deeper
on
frail
nerves

prison constantly
lacerates
hard questions
bastard state
locks away
marooned
on island
of
moral
blindness

“cuts”
harm to
the self
caused
by
others

no, no, no,
open your eyes
and look

cuts to prisoners

further wounds
further pain
further screams
nobody
wants
to hear….

many walls need tearing down
