Serious Poem – The Thread

Spiralling around the loop and going down it is nothing as long as you can thread yourself out of it again and again and again – until your head pops up for The Bite!     Copyright owned by Jay Cool, October 2019 Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay   Savvy Book – The Girl With…

Serious Poem – Electrical Slices

Fifty, one-hundred, fifty, one-hundred, fifty, fifty, …. forgot WHOOSH! Electrical currents slicing through my head, down my middle, down to my toes, dizziness, spillages – milk, hot water, tea .. then … I remember, the thing I forgot … the thing I was trying to come off … Sertralin … Keep walking, don’t think, keep…

Serious Poem – Monday Morning

Inspired by a reading of Philip Larkin’s poem, ‘High Windows’, within his anthology of the same name, whilst struggling to come to terms with a Monday morning – helped, in part, by a pot of tea in a Waitrose cafe.   Spilling milk, and feeling jugged, I gather up my teapot, spilling water – hot,…

Savvy Diary – The Torture

Just read a poem that arrived in my inbox, by Brandon Som. I struggled to follow many of the lines, as some were in languages other than English and, much to my shame, I am not even bilingual, let alone multilingual! Nonetheless, the following two lines stuck! Perhaps in the same way that a saw,…

Silly Article – Savvy Clown

A response to an article written by Bradley Jolly in ‘The Mirror’. What a fantastic idea to hire a clown as company for a redundancy meeting! Why give employers the satisfaction of believing themselves to be passing on bad news? A redundancy is, after all, an occasion to be celebrated. An opportunity. The chance for…

Silly-Savvy Poem – Obedience

A response to the post ‘More Intelligent Species Tend to be More Obedient’ by Hamed M Dehongi. Obedience. Rules. Lies. Business? Disobey, disassociate and, from a distance – take a stance. Stand!
