bookscover2cover – Needles & Tears

Another story of mine has been posted at bookscover2cover; called Needles & Tears, ican be read by clicking on the link. This particular scene was written in response to a prompt in which Jen of Blog It Or Lose It asked us to write a haiku with a ‘film noir’ feel to it.
To finish, here’s Elvis Costello –

Eager Fur


eager fur

laced with dew and shreds of red

on the bedroom floor


This poem was written for Carpe Diem Special #119, Tomas Tranströmer’s 5th “a wild boar plays the organ”, in which Chèvrefeuille asked us to write a fairytale-like haiku in response to one by Tranströmer. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. For some reason, I feel like pairing this poem with Girls Talk by Elvis Costello, so here it is.
