  • Hello, (11/18/2018 11:58:00 AM)

    In your poem 'About ahis Person', what would an interpretation of the lines: 'A pocket sized diary slashed with a pencil from March twenty-fourth to the first of april' be? ? ? ?
    This is for my English Homework but I can't think of anything, so I was wondering, would you be able to help me? ?
    Many thanks Victoria

then called your name, and handed them over.

O the unrivalled stench of branded skin
as you slipped your thumb and middle finger in,
then couldn't shake off the two burning rings. Marked,
the doctor said, for eternity.

Don't believe me, please, if I say
that was just my butterfingered way, at thirteen,
of asking you if ...

About His Person

Five pounds fifty in change, exactly,
a library card on its date of expiry.

A postcard stamped,
unwritten, but franked,

a pocket size diary slashed with a pencil
from March twenty-fourth to the first of April.
