My First ECT

There are bars
on all the windows.
Nightingales come
with plug-in leads, metal
discs and thick rubber bands.

ECTs are fast and efficient;
just a small clamp between
the teeth, slight pressure
on the head, then out
into the airing court
a thorax of blue flame.

My singed eyebrows
suit me.

The fifth in a series shot at a disused asylum - the Royal Derwent Psychiatric Hospital at New Norfolk, Tasmania.

The images in the series feature examples from a collection of 77 poems penned by Karen Knight, Postcards From The Asylum (published by Pardalote Press). These disarming poems were inspired by Karen's experiences as an inmate at the Royal Derwent in 1969.

this is proving to be a very powerful series, the images themselves are graphic but coupled with the poetry, quite moving also.
cheers
