Caged

Small strange square territory, marked over and over

Light dark irregular, no pattern, confusion

Every corner checked, no escape

One hope, strange hand bringing food

Strange sound, strange smell, door opens, teeth flash

Scurry to the back, mouth tastes metallic

Quick hide, fear of anger

Universe edged with wire mesh, no horizon

Small strange square territory, marked over and over

Dark light irregular, no pattern, disillusion
