Spilt Milk

Tonight, as we lay in the silence of the hour,

we are watched by The Mother –

The Moon

She sits still, unmoving, basking in the safety of the darkness,

warm and snug between the stars,

her reflection bouncing off the high points of your cheeks

with each turn of your head.

I do not know what is sadder:

The way she is able to rob the

Sun of his light and claim it as her own,

Or the way he so easily gives it up…

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
