Set into motion

by Christos Polydorou

is the belief
in a response. It
is often the result
of that response
ascertaining itself
across the waves. Unlike
its contemporaries,
it does not demand upon its
practitioners to run away. It requests
instead you stay, and watch your resilience
set into motion
a sequence of
seemingly disparate events
that however transform your prison cell
into a beautiful bedroom,
the walls lit with pictures,
the windows trembling
with light.
