Postcards From The Asylum #12

Discharge

Doctor says:
You've reached the heights
of a Chinese athlete on steroids.

He's sending me home
with a new brain, swimming
in a big glass jar.

--------------------------

The last 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.
