Savvy Poem – Towyn Trailer



Towing my brain into Towyn,

aiming for something static

to keep my thoughts from

lagging behind my actions,

from drifting off and taking

on a form of their own


or, worse, from sprinting on

ahead of my slowing feet,

I take the long road, slicing

a cuboid city into two identical

halves, my brain kidding me –

teasing back the zipper that

holds this bag of plastic



pulling it apart at the

seal, so that the road

in front of me splits, opens

out, making my feet panic,

step upon step, unable to

move forward


until, winning and elated, the

deep Earth takes me down,

reclaiming whatever it is in me that

crossed over to set foot upon                               Salopian soil

all those lives ago.

I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land.
