The Bedroom - Poem by Della Perry

Crocheted blankets for babies, times three
Never finished the one for the Christmas fetus
Why was he not born?
Pile of soiled clothes in a sprawled piece of art on the rug
Boots with mud caked soles
A lamp, murky brown, no bulb, useless, ugly,
A lonely six string
Favourite book on bedside table, spine bent,
Slimer, Harry Adam Knight
The Tarot book, The Fool comes to mind
Library books picked and read fervently
Oranges are Not the Only Fruit, Jeanette!
Snot covered tissues
A clean sanitary pad
Black Country Dialect book for Welsh Carys
Butterfly adorned writing pad
The remote
And a jammie dodger faux biscuit bracelet.

    well, except for the title along with the 'picture of the book's cover' which does not copy here on PH from the online page, i'd say the following book 'review' doesn't tell ME much. how about you?

    Jedna potrzeba pozostała nadal dominująca, tak jak było jeszcze w morzu. Głód stopniowo zmieniał się w potworną, bezrozumną żądzę. Pchał go przez niekończące się białe korytarze, gnał wizją rozdzieranego na strzępy krwawego mięsa…

    the poem's description of 'someone's' [i dare not guess whose] bedroom is REMOTELY similar to my bedrooms past. my bracelet was not faux, and i finished the biscuits in one hour.

    i was going to say i wish i could take a picture/photo of this room, but the poem makes it unnecessary.

    this is SO different [which could be taken several ways i suppose], i have chosen to put it into the October 'a showcase for PH poets, Section B. Della said for me to take the ones i wanted to use. ok!

    bri :)
