In Passing, Simply Fantastic


A poem should be 
A medium, let’s say 
A vehicle 

To spirit us away 
To another world 
Without us knowing it, 

Just like a hearse.

  2. Dead good. Made me chuckle too, as did the wonderful comment from WB.

  3. Can this be why, when in the writing of a poem there comes that unsettling feeling the wheels have come off, there often follows that delayed reaction -- the sense of relief -- the feeling that we should rejoice, because it means we'll be a bit late in arriving?

  5. Comforting to have such punctual, congenial company accompanying me on this one. :)
