World Poetry Day
As today is world poetry day, I thought I would use it as an excuse to publish some more of my poems. For audio click here. I might have got into a little argument with the anti-abortion campaigners on St Mary's Street the other day. This poem came out of the last thing she said to me.
She said she’d prey for my soul;
not once, or twice, but
every day for the rest of her life.
Every day for the rest of her life
she’d remember my angry face and
ask her god to save my soul.
As my teacher used to say:
it’s your own time you’re wasting.
The next poem is a experimental poem. It is a pantoum, which we were encouraged to write in one of my classes.
