Diary Entry 26:

gus-eagleton-2015-exhale-brisbane

Based on Gus Eagleton’s ‘Exhale/Inhale’.
Started 2:34pm. My dorm. Ended: 11:46pm.

Fences

Borders are like bike-locked beaks
screeching for a key in suffocating song.

They’re trees
in plastic planters
spotting images of fading sequoias
and spines
to loose-leafed papers
that capture catfish gliding
in a travel-sized ocean.

It’s lotion
on the landing
and the branding
of a cold sweat.
And paint on the planks where
the city flashes in lights.

-Amy Struthers
