THE CAGE

 THE CAGE

The soft rush of wings 
beat against the steel confines 
of the prison, the sound 
of pealing church bells 
strikes against the bars,  
the cage that encompasses 
more than a heartbeat.

No date, found on a scrap of paper with the poem called the scars on my toes from 1978.

Odiyan no efile
