THUGWISE CAT

Unshed By Sheikha A. I

Unshed By Sheikha A. I have been swallowing landays, their echoing screeching refracting macabre. And then I chewed upon the black waters of justice; clandestine writings – as if it wasn’t enough to drown under excessive layers of humility, that the written word needed to suffer the veil – but the veil is no vice. Nor is it cumbersome. Poetry has always been the secrets of a mad mind; psychobabble clothed in obsequiousness. But landays do not abash. Once the word is released, there is no fleeing – only incarceration. But, there is glory in the tinkering of society’s empaths – they defend them landays with quills made from the same trees that died suffering their weaponry – unshed unshelled unconfessed democracy. Author bio: Sheikha A. is from Pakistan and United Arab Emirates. Her work appears in over 90 literary venues, both print and online, including several anthologies by different presses. More about her can be accessed on her blog sheikha82.wordpress.com 36
