Best Poem of Colin Pickett

Made In China

I erased this poem
several times before,
unable to describe
artistically the intense
rage I felt upon finding
a hard, pink, Chinese
eraser. It was indescribable.
Something inside exploded.
After annoyedly fumbling though
baskets looking for
that familiar squishy sensation
and finding
the cold, hard, remains
of a previously
acceptable product.
Believe me, I have
nothing against the Chinese
or China. But honestly
China,
I dont like your erasers.
Stay out of my house
and baskets,
or at least make
your erasers ...

Between

Between the trees the
starshine night grows
to fill the air.
Between here and West,
the sun has left
its bare
touch.
Between here and death,
movement waits and
thoughts stare
at me.
Between myself and
the trees, dark and dreams
creep.
Alone,
the trees and I
feast on
time and sleep.
