New Poetry by Mark Roberts

poem (mist

it’s difficult to find the poem
in fog like this
    so thick
thoughts are shadows
a hint of meaning
you don’t dare follow

sitting here looking out
at the edge of the escarpment
come up suddenly from the valley
targeting the house like a helicopter
in an action film

open the window & let some mist in
allow to it settle
       in a dark corner
i'll think of a use for it later
