“You Asked Me What It Is Like” by Alice Field

Posted by admin on October 5th, 2007 filed in Uncategorized

I am a bat
I do not do what I should
I cut the strings
that bound my wings
and made me shuffle about
blindly
with my teeth.

I found an open window
and launched myself for flight
I clapped my wings
two unnoticed strings
caught me back sharply
slap
into a wall.
