an unfinished poem

March 7, 2017 § Leave a comment

I wondered what had happened

the way one listens

for the crackle of dawn

bursting through clouds

like a giggle through

a gap toothed smile
it doesn’t matter how many nights

are spent placing Polaroids as poultice over wounds of youth
you will always lose a little blood
(c) Fred Whitehead
