Louise Fazackerley


staple shaped table shaped
bucket shaped they try to fill us
well? well? unwell
shoulder pads in blazers
like polypropylene dimples stacked
we are lined paper
screamed at
chair on two legs
middle finger
both hands
everyone knows
they look like prisons
they shut us down
they shut us

all that’s left is
this, sir
