back soon

I'll be back blogging soon, until then here is a poem I submitted to my course.

Still life without you

The cupboard closes quietly as
it settles into place, a sigh of capture
intended. As reassuring as
a seatbelt sliding around me.

The old war-cupboard would still
be resounding, an echo of slams
descending from distant headlands,
the guns, my fingerprints everywhere.

The cupboard sits as silent as an
absence, a gap that exclaims,
remember I am still paused,
waiting in anticipation for more.
