Psychiatry 2: Student Daze – Poem 31


a manic young woman

she is in seclusion
jumping up and down up and down
in front of the window

to hold my attention
she has taken her top off
breasts
going up and down
up and down

she moves around the window
making sure
she keeps me focused
on her action
up and down
up and down

later
when the water seeps
under the wall
destroying the carpet
I realise
she had stuffed towels
and tissue paper
into plugholes and toilet pans
then let the water flow
and flood

while she bounced
for me

up and down
up and down
