The Alarmist 4
- The judge who ate the man
wept in the hastily-constructed Perspex dock.
- The judge who judged the judge
sat on the opposite side of the mobile room
to the judge who ate the man, on the cushioned chair he’d built at home.
- The judge who judged the judge was surrounded
by sound artists who recorded TV anchors
interviewing TV anchors, each with an opinion or two.
- The photographer whose pictures were of people
taking pictures stood outside in the steady rain,
focussed only on the father who’d fathered
the judge who ate the man, who took pictures
of people taking pictures of his son,
who’d arrived at the court a little earlier,
in a heavily-guarded van.
