Poem - The Doll

Intro


I stumbled across this image, as you do, and the lines of this poem occurred to me


The image for the Poem


the doll asked me

do you know her tattooist Drax

no I said, hesitating, drawn to the image

wary of the doll's motives

any doll hanging by the neck has motives,

my motto

how much time have i got with this image

before the door of life knocks and I am disturbed

at being disturbed....

A tat on the doll would have brought it all together...The grouse on the couch appears unimpressed...been there, done that..? Or just waiting to pounce on that creature crawling out from between the cleavage...Larry

thanks very much for this lovely comment Paint I Shall.

I find random images all over the net that have an impact on me. In the old days poets roamed around and although there is no substitute for that virtually you see things you would never otherwise see in a lifetime. I think one must always make an effort to write to images that 'speak' to you...
