"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

TAKE ME OUT

TAKE  ME  OUT  TO    THE  GRIFFINS

Egoistic bombast  says a woman on the stair

Best dressed   Best hair     No starving artists

in this lair    Governor General wears the same

spangly shoes as last year    No Transit of Venus

this year   Lots of  oh so beautiful men  who spout

beautiful words for a living  & masses of  imperious

women     One wears a cameo ring  but won’t make

eye contact         I want a list of hairdressers

 

 

Spring  2013     Ode to:   The Griffin Trust Poetry Awards
