Living the 1950's

I don’t remember

   the 1950’s.

 

But I spent 

   4 months and,

   15 days,

   living in the 1950’s. 

 

At least I’m told I did.

 

My parents got me there,

   before moving

   to the 1960’s.

 

All I know

   of the 1950’s,

Faces of cheeky kids

This woman has lived

My life hit the skids

 

Tales come with the pics

Stories of her family life

Domestic ups and downs

How she fared as a wife

Angry at what I missed

Wife, kids, annive...

Are Lyrics Poetry?

Whether this is a controversial view I don't know. But over the years many have called the likes of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and even Paul Weller Poets because of the content of their song lyrics.

The Photo Finish

The Photo Finish
 
The picture frame was empty.
 
Its blank expression populated cities.
 
The neon lights averted gazes or
focussed even more as
tarry skies consumed
mould memories.
 
Office block shadows
 tormented your
past
and your absent anecdotes,
projecting cataract photos
of lovers inside you.
 
You fell apart
