          Getaway at Nineteen             Ceinwen Haydon  Break out and grow up, escape claustrophobic cruelty, get miles and miles away. Those first nights frighten, emptiness and freefall make me grab a hand, the sticky fingers of a bright boy, Oxford scholar, heart of stone. He’s mighty bored and takes me. Less bored he impregnates me and with womanhood up-grown, too young, my freedom’s broken. Art: Woman with pitcher under trees, August Macke, Date: 1912, Style: Fauvism, Genre: genre painting, Media: watercolor 118
