Lockdown poems

Day 12

Feline in his menagerie
confined
my energy muscles
overwhelmed
do not know how
to engage

Keeps spinning
On his tail searches
Comes
And goes

Let’s free the beasts
In our twenty square meters

Come find
My thirsty muzzle
In your arms, encircled
My bandaged body
In your talons, kissed
My prey
From my not-yet-contaminated heart
My refuge
Come deconfine me
My refuge
Come fuck me

Alexandre Bédier, french version here
