Glass Half Full by Katie Lewington

sitting on the bed
duvet crushed underneath me –
I’m a sumo wrestler, victory

drinking a drink
with another fantasy playing in my head
where everything is in technicolour

it works out
and I’m sure, i am sure

but i am not now

i am walking around

it’s like, what am i living for

you gave up
i continue my duty
it is a burden
why did your freedom get returned
while i am here
taking care of our
spastic son.
