this is a poem I wrote two years ago about the now poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy.I think it is an empathetic accolade through the eyes of a would be critic.I have never shared my scribbles with any other than my most kindest clostest friends so I'm very nervous about this kind of exposure but am ready to recieve any comments/criticism from fellow poets out there !

On Carol Ann Duffy

you could have been beautiful

I can see that

Yet you wear it like a shadow

Your heavy chin jutting like a man-

Provocative.

You look like a woman who's at home

On the edge;

Your pain sniggers on the page,

Black ink.

You hate what men can do with hollow words while yours are

Gutteral,

Liberal

Bringing both boys and gods to their knees when you know

Very well that your craft is a

Honeysuckled heart.

Such a tease.

Such a tart.
