Visiting Hours at the Laughing Academy

Just a boy

And his half-bound book

All alone

In a white-walled room


Blank blue eyes

Though thoughts lie behind

With no pen

In a white-walled room


Past his door

In a dark red room

Sits a girl

With a fountain pen


Picks his lock

And she strides inside

“Write it, now,”

“In your half-bound book.”

    Powerful, and I find the repetition of the lines to be very effective. I want to be that girl. That saviour.
