your early work

your early work  (  a  p o e m  )



oh once upon a once upon

before squirrels went grey

you scribbled like an imp possessed

& ripples became waves


some sorts adore your recent dross

its glib modernity

deft, delicate yet puzzling

but that shit's lost on me


yes i prefer your early work

from younger, former days

before you were a wrong'un tit

a tosser & a knave


before you turned to cardigans

& drank peppermint tea

when crayons scrawled on y'old cave walls

your finest

 poetry
