Mimesis

Fated by Vic Briggs

Mimetic play of shadows, this life of scattered pasts

Re-lived in broken sequence and blind

To irony’s howl,

Refined

For a present imperfect, whence its actors recasts.

 

Barb wire. Wrapped spikes around the insoles of my feet,

The illusion of freedom dispelled,

Depleted of colour,

Repelled

The will of a slave, by destiny deemed obsolete.
