Best Poem of Gillian Thurlby

Avr

Doom and Gloom
And have you heard
She’s going to have an op.
Not just a lump
Or a nick and a tuck
They’re going to open her up.
With a slice and a saw
And a pumping of blood
They’ll stop the old heart
Then call for the pig.
They’ll shove in its bit
And cobble her up
They’ll undo the pump
And give her a jump
They’ll get out the staples,
The pliers and string
And hope that they haven’t left anything in.
They’ll push in a tube
Wherever they can
They’ll give her a fix
And say wake up ‘nan’
Its time to move on
Forget any ...

Fear

Fear stalks my footsteps round the silent house
I dare not leave in case a door may creak
The beating of my heart thumps like a train
Carrying secrets of which I cannot speak

I watch a ghost walk slowly past the glass
Eyes stare unseeingly from plum-soaked stains
Limbs testing their ability to move
Mind pondering what punishment remains
