I know all the risks of staying so I’ll just slightly slip away if it’s all the same to you. Only just enough to find out where the walls and borders are. I’ll run my toes along the edge and dream of running wild, fantasize about what these legs might do in open space. I’ll look as casual as ever so no stir is caused but rest assured: I dream entirely of escape. The kind of escape people write books about, the kind that makes crowds cheer and whisper revolution. I dream of burning this domestic prison to the ground and never looking back, not even for the satisfaction of seeing the chars spit through smoky piles of the burnt formalities that caused this insurrection. Don’t be fooled by an image of a lady content with a home and family. I’m already gone... [Ryan Nimmo]
