A Poetic Postcard


"The Midnight Scribe"

And here is the gorgeous poem for which my poetry quote came:


Slight of Hand
by Janey Kenny

the postman brings it
the little journal
shrink wrapped with poetry
sparse and tasteful
mots justes to burn
in a manner of speaking
each word paid for
with hard net-working

thin little poems
elegant plastic
anorexic
and pale in meaning

in the back pages
the words that matter

who the poets are
qualifications
publications
but never abortions
crimes or betrayals

poems forgotten
but names remembered
follow this taxi
to be dismembered


Created for an art challenge at Sunday Postcard Art.
