BINDS

chris-r-1110575 Image by Christine Renney

A loosening knot
or the rope that binds
The older and deeper scar
Is livid
Still healing
And on the left a fine line
An almost perfect match
The base of an empty can
Marks the cloth
And it cuts on through
The broken gin bottle’s jaw

  1. Quite a stunning imagery here which reminds us that we never really see beneath the surface: the story revealed by the scars is probably not the one that we imagine. Fine writing, Mark and a great complementary image from Chris.
