My records tell me this one appeared on two (now defunct) poetry websites “Nasty” and “Indie Journal” in 2000!

It was first ‘print published’ in COMRADES PRINT JOURNAL (UK)
Vol. 1. (May, 03) ISSN 1740-4703


I’ll bet there aren’t many of those around now!






phone index

a graveyard.
pages lap as headstones

resting place of dear friends
dead fifteen years lie beside my brother

the important have lost importance
the insignificant signified

friends become strangers
work mates faded away

couples uncoupled
business cards i never used

the pencilled have been penned
the penned faded

and my hand will not erase
nor put the final line through names

rub salt into wounds
add insult to injury

nor dance
upon a grave
