“Created Responses To This Day” Chaucer Cameron responds to one of my This Day images. I would love to feature your responses too.

The Takeaway

Savoury or sweet, hearing footsteps
on repeat, chilli caught between the teeth

ice cold larger in its can,
grip the railings with one hand

steady on your going to trip
plastic walls or maybe brick

and the tiger in its cage
pushed so hard against the bars

hearing footstep
on repeat – sick to death of steps like this

such a shame the parrot’s squawk
she was fast tracked, walked the walk.

-Chaucer Cameron
