Once I get it it’s strange as I imagine this is what being hypnotised might feel like.
This cold weather makes it worse.
Of course. I am glad I came.
I told you before
This would be the route we were going to be taking.
I surprise myself when I talk about stuff and remember
I don’t really know the words to explain how I felt.
Few people have been on my journey from the start.
I’ve learnt so much.
Please do not use my name.
When I was getting introduced
On a daily basis.
Between 5 and 6 in the morning
I wonder if they have come back to breed again.

I edit a newsletter for prisoners trying to take up yoga and meditation. This is a found poem made up of all the lines I cut from the letters page today.
