An Octave Higher

An Octave Higher

These endless reflections
That pale yellow colour
Languishing in its sick bed
Passing itself off as poetry
Dead from the neck down
Modern HuH!
Get up off your arse baby!
Let's Rock and Roll.

A poem for booklovers


Not your type at all
The sleeves rolled up
Jacket torn.

The cut and thrust
of words keeping
you amused for a

The blurb
Something to get
Your teeth in.

The bit of rough
round the back
The odd title bound.
And the foolscap
In the corner.
