You got a broken heart,
I got a few poems
for a future volume.

I’ll send you a copy,
signed with an innocuous
message. The word love
carelessly scribbled
above my signature.

previously published in Poetry Scotland.

Poetry Thursday this week asked us to write a poem for or to a poet. This poem is neither, but has been taken as being such. I did write a poem to a poet, but you'll need to go to Crafty Green Poet to read it!

I take it as a poem to an ended love affair. Meeting years later at a cafe for coffee.

Biting in its subject matter. A very interesting little poem. I like it.

This is breathtaking-I love the ending.

A rather stinging poem. Very excellently making a point and stabbing with it.
I like this a lot.

I like it being so short and sweet but pointed.
