‘Talk To Me, Poem, I Think I’ve Got The Blues’ by Nikki Giovanni.

I’m finding it hard to find the right words when I need them. Either there are too many difficult ones when I should probably just shut up, or not enough when I want to write a poem that has substance. Anyway, whilst on my rather melancholy travels through poetry land looking for words that speak more articulately than my own…I discovered this gem and it even made me smile!

My next poem is definitely going to be about a road sign.

Cross roads?
Give way?
One way?
Dead end?
Steep gradient?
Slippery road ahead?
End of speed restriction?

There’s half a poem right there…
