Magpie #37

was badly damaged

momentarily offered to 
the scrap heaps

I staggered

dropped the moment

pokerfaced interlude)


I couldn't part with
my last memory 

of you

  1. I've been there more than once...
    Nice one Jhon!

  2. For me it was an Gap dress shirt.. one i made into rags, the other I gave my son..
    those things....

  3. awesome. I like the dis-jointed flow of this piece, you have a really unique voice. nice.

  4. Loved the 'poker faced interlude' bit.

  5. Here too ... the poker face is an interesting conceit.

  6. yes - the poker face grabbed me as well..

  7. It's been said a lot here; in many different ways...

    Another fantastic peice. This one should be included in your next publication, if I'm not too bold in saying so.

  8. Oh.

    This made my chest sink, just a bit, while I remembered someone I used to love. This is brilliantly sad...


    p.s. Got Hands on the Hips in the mail last week and have been reading. :-) I love it.

  9. Thank you so much to everyone - I was a little hesitant about this one but liked it personally - once again the hard part is going to be coming up with a title to reference the photograph as the photo will not accompany the published poem.
