Beginning – The Other

OK – So along with other members of my writing group I am working on poetry along the theme of ‘The Other’ which basically means anything that is not within my own normality. The topic I chose for my first effort was a model because this is definitely something other than my norm, I am most certainly anything but model material. I am not best please with the outcome but as I haven’t got anything better I thought I would share anyway.

The Model

overgrown cuckoo in the nest
with an other worldly gawkish grace
eyes focused on the beyond
upon a hammer striked features face
unpretty rhythm demands attention
outlandish uncommon her passionless pose
gliding down choreographed head empty pathways
she achieves her ambition as hanger for clothes
