Glittering Prizes

Winner of the 2024 Milton Keynes Lit Fest Poetry Prize 'M in K Tales from the City' entry below. MK Fortean my city of glass lies secluded in plain sight, hiding its avaricious persona camouflaged behind mirrored refractions and reflections, ~ my cuckoo conurbation, robber baron village devourer slick consumer of consumers pell-mell human spa, or hypno-magnetic Shangri-La, ~ my casino of communities entombed in mummified modernism preserved under a fickle lens a confused composite DNA more helter-skelter than helicoid ~ my grid mat arterial entity, that bleeds to oil and polish its brilliant shimmering dermis a courageously proud showpiece carapace by which I am blinded

Yes, it's an insurmountable task. Rarely accomplished. Friend or foe, we never know.

Thanks Graham.

Hi Graham

Thanks for saying hello! Yes i do need to get writing again. Or even finishing off half written poems might be a start. Will do my best to make time for that because I do love the interaction on here. X

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the welcome. It looks a lively place in here.

I don't need a lot of encouragement, so once I work out what to do, I'll start posting properly etc.

Our cops have become targets
shot and killed every day
it's become routine-
the breakdown of our country
our civilization.

IF you wish to post a comment
you must first dig a hole
then plant the Post and fill in with cement.
After it dries, the Post will be there for a good 30 years.
haha

Graham,

I live not far from Warmington, which is the setting for this poem. I live in a larger town only a few miles away. A delightful county second only to one of its neighbours.

Thank you Graham for your Thanksgiving Greeting.
It's not everyday you get a word of encouragement, much less from so far away.
It's a shame you don't have real turkey. It is delicious.
You should get one to raise. They are easy to keep
but quite dumb. I think you could keep one in your spare
bedroom or in the hallway of your "Flat", if that's what you
have. Don't all Englishmen have Flats?
I will think of you as I eat my Turkey today along with dressing
and cranberry sauce. But, I won't think of you too long,
I'm going for seconds and have to be fast! hahaha

No apologies necessary.
I have successfully duped you
into thinking I write
poetry.
Something is further from the truth.
We just don't know what it is.

Hi Graham,

I admit I am late in responding, but life is always made of so many things, its often hard to come back to everything all at once.
I hope to connect and communicate with your group.
I am from India and unlike all of you maybe from a developing nation, trying to do what I love doing.

Looking forward to today's session.?

Thank you
Snehashree
