Port Authoritarian

Early Spring
set for journeying
in City streets
mapped on the Heart

Couch Council
advice rendered
hushed with Urgency
results in wasting

I swear I know
my way around
so how can It be
that I cannot find

A $1.10 bus ticket
circa 1989 & now

Hell

You’re sometime else
inexplicably Lost.

Poem 22 of 30 in April for National Poetry Month, shared with Real Toads, where it's Open Link Monday.

    Behind the sofa cushions?
    Sorry, I'm being daft out of ignorance.

  2. Only you know the details of what you're writing about here, but the feeling of it is vivid and sad.

  3. Yes, I get the sense of a journey too long delayed, or not taken at all. the pervasiveness of the 'lost' feeling at the end is very moving.

  4. You think that bus ticket (whoops, I originally wrote "bust"--Freudian slip) from 1989 is still good? Might be time to "spring" for a new one.

  7. I have been there when something so small fills me with urgency to find where it is hidden. I know not what caused this frustrated search, but I feel its importance.

  8. Ah! Escaping the lectures, wasting time on politeness, wasting time, years. How did that happen? Freaky cool!

  11. I noted that "sometime lost" too.......a poem that hints of a deeper story. Intriguing the reader to no end.

  12. I love the last two lines, Marian, what a wonderful concept..."sometime else" has been "inexplicably lost"!

  13. Sometimes we're lost and that's okay, I guess. As long as we can find ourselves again...*smiles.
