E - Escape, a haibun (attempt)

***WARNING: the poem touches on a grave subject and is in no way meant to make light of it; in fact, it is meant to shed light on the violence many still battle against.***

 

Eve fights to escape from under the oppressive weight which lands atop her. A fortuitous connection of knee to flesh, and she’s free.

Eve escapes
clutching only blankets
in her hands.
