The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - Trinkets and trifles

Trinkets and trifles


M A Heathcote

Trinkets and trifles what more could I expect
From a man who wears his boxers outside his vest
And drives on through the rain on an empty tank
Who drives on through life dying of thirst?

Trinkets and trifles what more could I expect
From a hero who doesnít do anymore than curse
At everybody at everybody elseís expense
Who sees his life as an empty loserís purse?

Gazing at stars looking for answerers
Drowning in a river winding through a door
Or a sidewalk without a dayís work foreshore
What more could I expect from a lame dog
Needing a vet?

But these trinkets and trifles
These endless nights with their deep down hurts
Trinkets and trifles what more could I expect
To find; behind your revolving rolling eyes diverts.

What more could I learn my sweet heart besides you
But to fly like a bird to where my own heart
Might be heard for more than just a comforting word
And a nursing kind of solace a nursing kind of love to depart.
