i have dreamt this place before

If you’re new here, I suppose I ought to explain this. So I call this a ‘Cell Poem’ – I don’t know if I invented it, but I’ve never seen one in the wild. It basically functions like a big, clunky acrostic. It can be read either left-to-right or top-to-bottom.

I’m still working on injecting a bit of a punch into the lines, though it’s somewhat difficult due to the rather stringent demands the form requires of each word.
