Poem 'girl in the park' / plus parties and poetry gigs and good stuff coming up!!









girl in the park

watch her now
smudge of a girl
furtively pocketing conkers
I always feels like I'm stealing them
says she
feels like stealing... 
but they fall from the trees for free
her pockets stuffed with chestnut baubles
useless treasure for spiders
shiny balls of good for nothing
but they are so beautiful aren't they
she holds one up in wonder
brushes off the muck
and holds up another
counts the colours
calls them red and brown and gold
horse and cello
and nuts
she'll be late
she'll be in for it later
but she's always 
in for it
later.
