    I like how the inhabitants in this particular poem live in impermeanance, which is generally thought of as something freeing something that doesn’t stay forever; and yet they are said to be inmates. It’s as if to say that we are condemned to be free…

      Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my piece. I love how well you have interpreted this poem. Indeed, we’re enslaved and bound to our desires, relations, and the internalised ideas of a society, as we believe to be free. Are we really free? What is liberty without not having to say, “two plus two makes four.”
      As George Orwell, my favorite literary writer puts it “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
