Yours and mine

Your,

 

PhD

out-brains me

 

Tits and thighs

out-lay me

 

Mum and Dad

out-pay me

 

Elocution

out-say’s me

 

My,

 

Determination

scares you

 

Confrontation

dares you

 

Dazzling wit

impairs you

 

I’d 

crush you if I cared to

 

But I don't

so won't

 

All life

is strife

July Collage Poem: 'Grit'

entry picture

 

Blood on flashing dancefloors;

towards the courts of monochrome

our killer slouches home.

 

Time is running out, I'm suddenly aware

and the poetry flows -

and so it goes...

 

The beauty of grit is retrospective.

 

Strawberry juice on chin

swallowed in one breath

over a mis-shaped tattoo

 

Tattoos last longer than love;

ink is the blue kiss of death...
