The Last Night in the Cottage by the Sea – Hannah Linden

The Last Night in the Cottage by the Sea

I am inside. Walls are my biscuits. 
I could eat them all day long 
and never be full.

The carpet is the weave around hundreds of pockets. 
I have put myself inside them
piece by piece.

Wind howl down the chimney tells me
about the moon. Full outside comes 
with a shaft of light if I take a peep.

A silver stripe across the sea spreads 
triangular towards me. I am 
an unbalance of atoms caught in a time box.
