Emergency Exit by Des Mannay


All one

A loan

All gone




All lies

All day


All done


All run

All lost

End it!

“‘Emergency Exit’ is a poetic suicide note. The sparseness and repetitiveness of the lines echo the illogical/negative linear thought process – up until the end; which breaks the pattern. Which means it can be read in two ways – either the subject ‘ends it’ or breaks the thought process” – Des Mannay
