One Poem by Edward Alport

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

The worms are waiting

The worms are waiting
For that elegant decay,
The clouding varnish,
The crumbling cushion.
Who will take the chair indoors
In Pripyat, today?

 

Edward is a lecturer and writer, mostly on business and politics. He often posts twittaku (double haiku in 140 characters) on Twitter, plus the occasional political limerick.
