Shards of Prado

‘Shards’ by Jay Cool

Inspired by tea at Prado Lounge.

Hours spent
at Prado Lounge,
with a one-cup
pot of tea.

To write out angst
in a café full
of strangers.

Strangers who strangle my
words with
talk of

Facebook, overdrafts
and
specials.

I sharpen my pencil
for shards of
wood that crisp
into fans
for fairies.

Shards of words,
phrases and idle gossip –
a never-ever-nose piercing

punches its way
into my
scribblings.

What to do now
with the
shards?
