It’s like we had created our own lawless diy dimension in this inhuman world

you, your mum and I

and you slept safely in a room with clean sheets, a tv and a reading lamp

and I felt like my family was safe

because a family is safe when everybody feels like they belong

even though they might rather be elsewhere

those are just sweet dreams we dream under warm duvets

damaged bodies not ever able to see or feel themselves

damaged souls playing an endless part in bad plays

but in here

there is enough love to suffocate a puppy

there is enough abstract thinking to make a national contemporary art museum

there are enough natural laws to write a science book

but no one will

not tonight
