Whispering Paper

Another sodden night.

Corpsed cauliflower fingers.

Bright blazing eyes.

Meaty muscular hands,

criss crossed cuts.

Covered in film.

Sergio Leone

Whispering Paper.

Smouldering rustler.

Silenced by rain.

Never wore gloves.

    You gave it away Sir, I looked up Sergio Leone and yes they call me Trinity and in case you forget, Trinity's still my
    name. Strong descriptive language. Whispering paper speaks, 'Wanted dead or alive.' I like whispering paper reminds me of the screaming telegram in Harry Potter.

    The image I get here is the image of someone violently exposed to the rough realities of life, weather beaten and down to earth who takes things in their stride! Though life is irksome for him, still there is glitter and blaze in his eyes! With crisp words, you have drawn a vivid portrait! !

    The barren toughness of living like the large emptiness of wide open spaces, exposed without mercy to all life has to throw at a soul;
    Darn-good poem! ! !

    Strong write in short concise bursts.
    Well done.

    I used to work on a farm and my hands were the same. Chapped hands like dinner plates. An inspirational poem Anthony.
