Bowl of Sorrow

Rum and Robots

Photo by Orlando Allo on – Poem Bowl of Sorrow by Joni Caggiano written on November 5, 2021

my eyes swollen, arousing now, the floor vanishes
hobby horse clings to a ceiling that does not exist
fragments of skin reek of fear, never ceasing
my heart is pounding, breathless for air
becoming that boney, big-eared child
you are no longer kind to me
pretending not to see
for I am caged
not free
