On A Broken Plain

Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. — T.S. Eliot

Way cool! my vision

will go

shadowed awake


turning away

a broken promise

& painful regrets

the lovers

come singing

wondering why

our neighbours

take comfort

in strife –

languid neon halo

on a broken plain –
blot out the
silent shadows!
