MY ONE OFF

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 5:28pm

The Meaning Of Life

opened out before

My Eyes

from a pod of brown

cracked with gold

revealing something pink —

God’s Magnificent Joke?

Oh! It’s The Reason

For Schizophrenia

Now I Will Paint It

 BLACK

FUCHSIA

&

SILVER!!!!
