Back in January I declared 2012 the year of the short poem (on this blog at least). Since them I’ve only posted three short poems. Not good enough.
Here’s a short poem I wrote in 2006 which I was reminded of with the recent death of the Tongan King.
For Prince Tu’ipelehake & Princess Kaimana
When the Tongan prince and bride
Were driven through the Tongan streets
I learnt the word cortege
Another wee one
On television the wannabe models receive advice:
Don’t let them think you’re thinking.
Out and about
And one more poem
A joke about real estate
The tender process.
