Best Poem of Ivan Donn Carswell

Breathe Again

keeping a day ahead when
space occupied by those
preceding still reeks of
waste is deemed vagrancy

and planning non-events
because your life depends on
it does not explain why no
demand exists in any case

living in expectancy of a
life-changing phone-call
doesn’t bring order to the
chaos surrounding you, so

unleash suspense, be an
angel freed of tyranny
leave the mess, hide the
phone, breathe again
© 25 January 2010, I. D. Carswell

Read the full of Breathe Again

Bilove Ran Out/I/B

the simple account
love ran out
no-longer sustained by
medieval bracelets charmed
with romantic favour

you could see it
as attributed by fate
grafted in years of hard labour
