Tony says that the meaning of the word ‘Jarrytale’ as:  “It’s like a fairytale, only it’s unsettling. A tale that jars. A “jarrytale”!

unbolt me

modern Andersens write
without mistakes and blots
instead of candle light
they waste kilowatts

a tin soldier is no more than
a shell for microchips
Lukoje is a horseman
of the apocalypse

a little match girl
burns a town to ash
Thumbelina rides a merle
guarding a Mole’s arms cache

…the only misfit
was a nightingale
she doesn’t give a shit
she left the fairytale jarrytale
