Poem by: Peter Schonefeld
Photography by: Mel De Ruyter
And here i lie, a bed for feathers.
but soon realise this rest is just
an interlude to a deeper crisis
as my shade floats down
to a place with
ink on white walls
(valleys carved by clouds
and pasted vertically into
flat forests foretelling failure
by tweened sheets by
ancient lichens on igneous) and
(collecting like strings in space,
rivers in the topography of time:
grouping and repelling,
and blocking exits).
after forever, she asks,
why so sad Icarus?
i reply, “there’s no way out.”
too bad, she chides smugly,
you’ve built your own damn.
now live in it.
