Poetry from NHI publications
a kind of requiem|
people who have vanished
pressed into poems in small defunct magazines
still breath sometimes athwart my dreams
to turn them into nightmares like
Boadicea's double-decker bus
brought out to be a shoppers' special
with scythe blades in its wheels
well what the hell is it for anyway?
poets better by far than I
at this art or craft or what you will
of making a pageant out of pigswill
long since have given up poetry
preferring usually to die.
