in the head

I have this head I cannot shake and I

have his tears collected up inside and I

am not the one on which he can rely

and I haven’t cried for many months but I

feel the river damming up inside and I

cannot shake it, cannot escape this cry.

  1. I love reading your poetry, Ruth. It’s so beautiful. I don’t think I’ll ever understand how you do it.

    I, on the other hand, am very sucky at poetry. Look here, at my latest piece of shit:

    “Be a bean.
    Be a sprout.
    Catch a carrot.
    But don’t be a bean.”

    Hope to see you tonight at Matt’s gig maybe??
