Mortgaged to concrete

Chained.
cuffed to concrete,
a self made jail
of stone and daub
adobe, concrete

prisoner to deeds,
twists of yellowed paper
buzzing wasps and scorpions

A pact of shelter
that falls, crushed before the storm
or ashes under fire

days spent serving sentences
denied,
lover, children, home.

The slave is now the master
of your truncated existence.

Millstones….
Yoked asses
wearing diamond bangles
on a jokers neck.

– Dave Kavanagh.
