The Mallet

The mallet
Ancient tool
Held by many hands
Down through the ages
Hands of skill and experience
Worn and hardened
By labour and care
Resigned to
Tent pegs and vampires

Short and Sweet

A Spring of Dreams

Some poems
Short and sweet
Unlike me

Taut relationship
Strained over a bloody mess
Chemical fallout
