Poems from Merlin Flower



Lay

The winding lanes creaked, pleading

for abundant love.


I am looking

for a trace of

it, I replied.


Post me

a mail,

a small one will do,

when you find it,

I added to

the winding lane

looking

for love in abundance.




Specifically

I met a dog lover

on the road.

He gave me two

fortune cookies.

Money, wealth and love will

come to you soon,

said one.

great days ahead with

shattering wins,

said the other.

I waited for

the flourishes

that never came.

After five years

I met the dog lover

again.

I asked.

He said,

Those weren’t fortune cookies,

They were contrary cookies.

He walked away with the cat

In tow.




I had

radiant charm

for breakfast

shock

for lunch

and

spiral confusion

no,

shy desire

for supper.


Now, pick out the

nought.
