MY POETRY IS IN PIECES

Sign of the Times-0609

My poetry is the DAILY MAIL HEADLINE
And a BIGOT‘S RANT, making me angry.
My poetry is wanting to answer.
My poetry is feeling how I feel
When I can’t.
My poetry IT DON‘T KNOW NO GRAMMAR.
My poetry is a passenger in me van.
My poetry is too short and clumsy.
My poetry won’t get up to dance.
My poetry RESPECTS WILLIAM BLAKE.

My poetry is what I make.

  1. “My poetry is feeling how I feel
    When I can’t”…

    Well those verses are perfect!… All my best wishes. Aquileana ~☀ 🌟★🌟 ☀ ~

  2. So much the border of emotion and visceral, the edge just beyond words, the passion seeps out like each word is a hole against the frustration of what may be demanding you to turn it out, dampen the fire, medicate the source of heart.

    Also damn fine photographer, holy crow.

    • Thank you Heather for such a passionate response, it really does mean a lot.
