Rewind - Steinun Helgadóttir

Rewind.
Eyes fixed
on
widelenshorison
hands

steady
on the wheel
of fastcar
on
the road
in
control
and not
one

pillar of salt
in
sight.

Rewind.

breathing
behind
thin
layer of skin           breathing
white

sunbaked
walls
outside
you.
Breathing
dust
that feeds
a beast
inside

you
called time
