storms cleaved on the resolve of her steel
from the bridge of her eyes
she watches over me
long after I leave
pantheon of infant vessels
mother edifies the child before release
for it may break on the coastline

This poem has been written and strung together by me, the highly strung one.

It is printed on cream-coloured paper, covered in a matt laminate for protection and assembled by hand with red string and a wooden peg. It comes in a glass test tube, 20mm x 150mm with a black stopper.

For a little extra you can purchase a stainless steel stand, handmade in Melbourne, allowing the poem to pose proudly in its new home. Just choose this option from the menu before clicking the ADD button above.
