Without realising it, the postman leaves a poem

Something for you –

 

heads the blue card

 

This something

is it a poem?

a sonnet,

a verse,

an enveloped ode?

 

Your item is

 

a parcel.

It could not be delivered.

No-one was at home

on this date 14. Dec

at this time 1pm

 

for the verse? No

the item

You’ll have to collect

(Now, this is the poem?)

the something for you

at our depot.

 

I have produced two books of poetry.  The poems of my first volume draw on experiences of my youth.  Shining in Brightness includes poems that explore young love and infatuation, trying to forge a creative path and remember the father I lost to cancer.

The second volume is dedicated to contemporary men, aka ‘the Modern Boy’. The poems filter advice and insights through the voice of a character called Emily. Preview Emily’s Poems for Modern Boys here.
