Another Lie Love Poem

Ok so I did another workshop with some folks this will be a monthly deal before Innverse at Sandbar 6-8pm last Monday of the month. Its another lie of a love poem, although I do come from a line of farmers miners and dry stone wallers apparently.


He came from a long line of steeplejacks

he was swift, his limbs and joints

moving like a locomotive

he scared me shinning up drainpipes

a lone overripe dented pear

reminded me of gravity

and I would shout up

it shouldn’t have happened


my people were of the earth

tilling it, digging deep under it

growing things and winding walls on it

we found it too hard to meet in the middle

it took years to find my way back

to me.


The words and phrases I was given were: the pear reminded me of gravity, it took years to find my way back to me, it shouldn’t have happened, shout, steeplejack and locomotive.
