Strange Meeting

(lost in the new supermarket)

 

 

'Fire Door'

 

I read and read until 'Fyodor' entered my head.

How he was led to his mock execution.

The utter dread of being dead.

 

Suddenly myself in the very act of fear;

'I'm locked up in here forever'

Total terror, total dread.

 

'Turn Left' it said, so relieved.

How Dostoevsky felt,

After his reprieve.
