Pinned
My thanks to the photographer Dave Leiker for his permission to use this photo of his I sourced from the ‘Casual Images’ section of his site kansasphotos.com.

woken
somewhere
on that long
run from
midnight
to the dawn
pinned by
the relentless
adamant
feeling
of self
narrow
as a
matchbox
coffin
pinned by
that feeling
squirming on it
butterfly
nailed
against the
cold-hearted
wall
of
night
finding
yourself
to be
self
and not
a damned
thing to
do about
it

The music for the reading is from the piece ‘Melody in the Mist’ from Bela Bartok’s ‘Mikrokosmos , Volume IV’ (1926-1939), interpreted here by Rino Nicolosi.
