“Why must you leave me alone?
You’ll be alone all the time soon,
You could stay and keep me company.
We could chat – about anything
or nothing. Remember.
Remembering is good.
He was something else –
he had the power
to make our lives miserable.
And he did.”
“Why should I want to remember Potain?
You talk such rubbish most of the time.
I’d rather go to my room and listen to music.”
It makes no sense
but eavesdroppers rarely catch
anything more interesting than a cold.
Vivtoria at dVerse suggests we have a go at a dialogue poem: I thought it wouls be easy,. It was anything but! Do go and read some the accomplished poetry of other pubgoers.
