Rusted Cuff

Straining until my muscles tear, I can’t break free. The rusted cuff binding me is made of stronger stuff than me, and I realise what the saw is for.

I move my wedding ring to my free hand, and grit my teeth and think about my family. The saw takes my flesh greedily.

    I love the detail about the wedding ring – gives so many questions. A strong image, not easy to forget.
