(lost in the new supermarket)
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.
