Smothered with doubt
But seasoned with age,

Full on the tongue,

I was consumed
By just the thought.

A beguiling sight
Sketches of all we’ve been through
As ghosts fill the park

The gnarled redneck gent
All pot yellowed fingertips
Flapping the wind wild

Is gone.

Occupied Territories

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2009 by dc

Nothing more
Than circumstance,

A blackberry
In a gooseberry bush,

Lost in
Occupied territories,

Stereotyped
Victims grieving,

Alone through petulance.
