August Collage Poem: Making Poetic Hay


A caged bird in Wetherspoon's

Flashing jazz through messy mental maps

On skull-grey stepped buildings

Where books and more books glimpse

of measured escape


Over corridors blocking ways out

edited down stopping feelings

of revenge pleading eases

enchanted in a warped love


Messy murder, mental madness

Who is free and who is caged?


Too many hang-ups on my mental map

Seashore, blue skin and a dear gust of air

The odd wink of an old man as he sips

his watered-down half-pint


Autobiographical assonance enchants.

Re-reading this, I have to say it is quite brilliant.

Well done, everybody.

This has got to have been one of the better ones.

Hanging on lines of mad mental madness we have escaped from this caged Collage poem.
