Issue Ten:
A short course of treatment

By Tim Love


Six walls replace three of scenery.

On the sides, slowly moving faces

sucking at the glass.


They put a colourful ruin in the centre

so they can watch me explore in and out,

questions and answers.

Every so often they add more

complications to avoid –

a plant, a diver, a treasure chest.


Each week while I’m out

of the way they clean, and

I forget everything.
