Poem of the Month: Crush

Posted: August 11, 2011 in Personal, Poetry

Take the treasured sea shells
crush them in hand.
Scatter them in the shape of me.
Cover me in red sand.
Gather bits of words
gifted freely and unadorned.
Watch their sentiment unravel
like a woman scorned.
Fragments of the whole
displayed in all their ugly grief.
Casting blame wide and far,
I am the only thief.

*I wrote this back in the late 90’s, probably 1999.
