I don't want to talk about 'it'! Poem by Sue Stone


No thanks.

I don’t want to talk about ‘it’.
‘It’? F*cking ‘it’?

That
tiny,
snivelling
insignificant
mono
syllab ic simile
for something that’s bigger
than a f*cking aircraft hanger?

Your puerile insensitivity

Let me leave you with that thought.

Hanging in the air,
For you to store in your
F*cking aircraft hanger
