Random Poem:

tuppence
ilikeblue

light spills from beneath the doorway
 1
and we crawl through the shadows to embrace it
 2
rattling a discarded cup with a lone penny inside
 3
 
 
begging the world to take notice
 4
unabashedly unashamedly scribbling
 5
“WILL WORK FOR ATTENTION”
 6
on a torn piece of newspaper
 7
 
 
and the world yawns, turns its back and gives a
 8
disinterested wave of acknowledgement
 9
as another penny plinks into the cup
 10
 
 
(a sad saving grace)
 11
