Skittles & Liquorice - Poem by Michael Witkowski

the soughing of trees
whispers through
windows, through
the chinks- a filtered
breathing noise
twigs rock to and fro
i here
alone with my distress
this from her
and from her
why doesn't the wish
put an arm around me
with blissfulness and
liquorice? Am i repulsive-
a skittles ball?
