Poison’s Embracing Grey

by Joseph Robert

The poisoned worm gets the early bird
And what’s more
Scott Free
For the Mole Police don’t investigate natural causes
In this pensioner’s allotment
In this grey garden
There is no need for inquests
And so it’s smoothed over
For he passed on in no great pain
Having chirped his call
Among bare branches
Where the dawn embraces the mist


(Joseph Robert) only exists inside your head. Well, I mean technically it’s true, Homunculus. http://writeoutloud.net/profiles/josephrobert

I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.

    This month my hubby poet, Joseph Robert’s poem – Morning Song – appears in Walking Is Still Honest magazine (WISH). What a great way to kick off the long bank holiday weekend…another publication for us to celebrate!
