February Space (February 2013 Collage Poem)

entry picture


Sudden light falls shining

through tentative air;

I've got Plath married to Larkin -

where did that come from?


Let the Queen

take us from reality,

dreaming of coupling

and cosy nests.


Death and the maiden: sure as taxes

and angry mothers-in-law;

secret sadness

masked by convention.


Your heart-beat

beats with mine;

I've got a title

for all those paintings: 9-11.


Love me when you're drunk and naked;

Don't look at me there, though.

Emotive words, feelings

stirred, memories evoked.

Sudden light
The Queen
Drunk naked
Feelings stirred.

Don't look
Unless your
Heart beats
With mine.

The image fits so well with the first and second lines on the collage poem.
