Poem: From the Notebooks of Poet J XIX – XXII


 

XIX. TRUST ME

 

I sat for hours

creating a poem

in my head

It was so complete,

so perfect

that I didn’t need

to write it down

 

 

XX.        MULTI-PURPOSE POEM [Written in black marker pen on a kitchen sponge]

 

When a sad poem

is required,

immerse in water, read

and squeeze out the tears

Create your own variations

as the mood takes you

 

 

XXI.       PLANNING AHEAD [Written on successive pages of a blank diary]

 

I wrote this poem

ten years ago

I hope one day

to understand it

 

 

XXII. TRUTH [Composed of words and pictures

                         cut out of erotic magazines and glued on orange

                         card]

             

One moment

before waking

it all made

perfect sense

 

(from “The God in the Box”, Agàpe Publications, 2003)
