GRAEME FELTHAM
discarded for use

do we control the people we inhabit?
that is our own affectations to stave off a way
of being
that is nothing other than cowardice

or when someone loves us
and we are under their skin
do we flay them
shred them to bleed
so that
we feel
we control the people we inhabit?
