MY POETRY IS IN PIECES

Sign of the Times-0609

Image by Christine Renney

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.

    Great work – this is what poetry should be about, straight from the ‘heart’!

    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.
