Stuck In The Middle

written by: Freya Pickard



left dangling
forgotten, unwanted
crossing the line
stuck in the middle
neither one thing
or another
half in light
half in dark
suspended midway
betwixt heaven and earth

such a deadly arrow
to bring down a god
a useless tool
in the hand
of a primate
