61| The Watchman

Krystal Marsh


Will, you’ve got a pair of eager eyes.

Illusions of me are embossed onto your brain,
Visions of me wanderlusting and excavating –

Whilst you sit there like Jove,
Questioning my oaths and
Mounting your own up high
With words that undermine my love
And overestimate your own.

I’ll trade you a white ox,
Fresh and fair,
For your sugared sonnets.

Will the watchman take control?
Will the watchman sleep at all?
Will the watchman ache with troth?
Will the watchman write me off?

Krystal Marsh is a writer based in Philadelphia. She recently graduated with her MA in Shakespeare Studies from King’s College London.
