LOCKED

Chris R-0167-2 Image by Christine Renney

Who is this masked marvel
This vagrant spider being
Scaling four storeys of sheer brick
For a junk mail and newspaper nest
Cold and dank and dark
Beneath it televisions
Hundreds upon hundreds
Of televisions glow
A lively hum and thrum
In a concert of disconnect

      Thank you. Actually it wasn’t easy finding the right photo for this one so, it is really good to hear you feel it works. Regards Mark and Chris.

  1. A superb photo Christine, among my faves of yours. And the image dances so well with the poem, both speaking of alienation. “…In a concert of disconnect.”… sums it up and it’s an image of horror to me.

Tell us what you really think. We don't bite. Ok, most of us don't bite.
