One Poem by Rennie Halstead

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.


Just wait here, they said
Someone will join you in a minute,
explain the job. Would you like coffee?
Whatever you do, don’t move.

That was an hour ago. No coffee
No explanation.
I like the view well enough
Plenty to see, but I need the loo.

It’s nice up here. Quiet,
plenty of time to think.
I wonder what Jill would say.
Get a job, she said,
Anything. There’s work if you look.
Perhaps I’ll give it another hour.


Rennie has been writing poetry for years, but usually publishes work on his blog at
