Willpower - June Collage Poem

entry picture

Herded in trains, peripheral memories,

feelings frozen under violent suns

frizzled out across the weekend:

tuna and chips, beer in the square.

 

The will of one person

gets power from many;

The loudest of actions

hide behind a silent will.

 

Sometimes I forget to get some

try not to be stupid and don't laugh

truth too painful to hear

 

Better the cracks of

the Age of Oblivion than to

board a Nazi train.

 

Chocolate cake.

I was thinking of doing a large single book of them, Andy. Each one sums up each evening very well.

Each mind

Which when
