two poems

packing boxes

packing boxes
ready for my move--
the past's accumulated weight
secured with masking tape
so it doesn't spill.


mobile poet

writing bad poems
on my mobile phone--
i'm down to the last
bar, as usual

two small gems, Bruce.

Cheers, Glenn. "packing boxes" I literally wrote in my head and recorded in the "notes" section of my mobile so I wouldn't forget it before I got home. I wonder if any other poems have been composed this way?

i hate it when you write a poem in your head and you think it's great ... but when you write it down you realise it's a piece of crap!
