Corded Poem by Adrian Flett

Corded

Rating: 5.0


In sporadic sleep, self-maligned muttering
swims the hulk of contriteness,
floats in circles; returns to argue
each fine point of stupidity.
Wake from sleep a mere gel.
Hope coats a husk.

Eagerness to please
leads a lapse to friendship's
warm lulling arms.
Now if, to seize the moment,
sever what remains corded
there is none other
to supplant you.
