Inside Twelve Hours

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 8:00pm

In M(eye) Fortress of Art

Eye am armed with talent

and Those Who  dare enter

will come under siege —

The Cats are spooked

The Guests are few

and Eye remain secluded

grappling at a distance

with a husband

who has declared his Statement

made against M(eye) Body
