The Box I

I box you in cold thing
touch the handles that
trammell you, contain you
like the beast you are
all-knowing eyes unblinking
face the light - a danger where 
we place our feet, walk, talk, meet
our time is fast, yet most
hand it over to
your face of glass
impassive stare
the minds all clammy-eyed
mesmerised, erased
by your bright imaging
I box you in cold thing
take back control
you will not win.
