People who live in glass houses


People who liDSCN0454ve in glass houses
are seldom found
but stone-walled people in locked up rooms
are all around.

They lie awake in a darkness
where no light shines
or in sleep relive the disaster that has left them
survivors in mines.

Sometimes they sit up, they listen,
they hear the rescuing bands
tear at their bricked-up exits
and they wait, with stones in their hands.
