Calligraphy Sentiments


Electric devices dictated my life
there's something that lives in the woods that terrifies me.
I stand beneath the alter, dishevelled
trading in my dreams for dot matrix pay check.

The thought of my grandad made me run,
a walk on role for the sensitive, perhaps. Peace be upon him.
A dog eared version of Philip Larkin for show.
I catch the glimpse of my second self in a parallel universe.

I write unsent letter after letter, calligraphy sentimentalist.
The same old fears mixed up in a wedding invitation.
The confusion of a smile from a stranger,
a sudden urge to misbehave.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
