November 2021 Collage Poem: Perplexing Forms

entry picture

Old honest mirror of rage in hollow darkness

Echoes, echoes of truth vibrating in unison,

Safe soft echoes


Ben Hur burst through the door

Of the high class restaurant in his

Chariot of obscurity


Covered in dust, some of the books died

In the silence during lockdown

The great book escape


Observe her hardened humanity.

Taxman swimming through the forgotten books,

Sand in his pockets.


Sharing creativity in so many different forms

We are all chrysalises turning into butterflies


The shadows housed the blank books read by the future dead

The last strip sings with small town remembrance

Nude model wanted in the mirror forever young.

Discreetly passed pen included
paper strip secretly folded
on days like this
we often miss Maggie
explaining the Collage rules
to all poetic newcomers.
