short forms 12th February 2016

no fear
for the new look
a touch of old magic
to make her socially aware
of dicks

sudden colour
in an otherwise bare garden
crisp packet

happy morning
with the laundry on
washing-up done
I'd never have guessed
the teenager had done it

she works from home
wearing the tee shirt
I bought her

not work appropriate
but her conference call
is voice only

Her boss wants to skype...

She puts on weight. Contemplate suicide.

Super haiku. I am always so envious.

(Who writes shitty poetry?)

Ah, Skype calls. I have one of those coming up. Scares me half to death. How do people do that?

Rachel Green said...

I do, much of the time

DK does it all day, has built his business around it.

You slay me. Every ounce of poetry knowledge I have comes from you.

Your poetry is sublime, dear lady
