Turn

Standard

Counting off,
one by one
Here we sit,
neat in rows
All the same,
empty stares

Wooden souls,
polished smiles
Held by rules,
stuck in place
Prison cells
left unlocked

In plain view,
rebels stir
Sideways glance,
about face
Broken line,
open door

Inspiration: Prague’s history of oppression coupled with the fact that two little critters are breaking “the rules.”
