Fish, mouse, poet,
hooked and guillotined,
snagged and gridded and greened,
caught in the act,
From before the beginning
there was no possibility of escape.
I learned to love the pointy end,
confess with blood and colours on my tongue
and be still.
Poem and art by clinock.
Caught. 8″ x 8″ (20 x 20 cm). Mixed media relief in cradled panel.
