Poem of the Day

Polite Pause

 

Prawns,

floating commas in

the tidal way of things,

eyes bulging the full stop

as the net drops.

 

We complain

sweet morsels are

a pain to peel,

much like meaning in

conversation over dinner.

 

Just don’t forget

to take the rubbish out.

 

Dead prawns like tide and time

wait only for

the exclamation mark.

  1. This poem makes a good point! I especially like: Just don’t forget to take the rubbish out …
    A suggestion – put these lines last, after Dead prawns … Exclamation mark.. It’ s the sting in the tail!
