Z-composition: April 2012 (Poem)

Steel

I am reluctant to record these events
If no log exists
it should be easier
to allow it not to imprint
no visible layers
no sediment to tell a tale
no tale to tell
no tattling
no more battling
make it stop
don’t speak anymore
hush hush baby
push push
lose the will
pause the reel
better still, stop this projection
it’s upside down
out in the hall
I hear the shackles
banging
