Savvy Poem – Enhancement



Taking a chance, I burrow into the furrows of my freckle-spattered skin,

digging out the white-grey hairs

to display them, proudly, alongside any golden reminders of another me.


There are so many versions of myself, in evidence still – each one

as worthy of existence, as the one before that lingers,

hanging on and jostling for attention.


To be fair, I devote a little bit of time to each, before preparing the surface of myself

for the newbies.

Savvy Book – Giving a F**k

Published by The Silly-Savvy Salopian

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. 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. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
