Feminine Sail

written by: SMiles



Baiting a trap made of breath
expelled and delivered
one no is enough
turning tide on the river
heralding the liberated
is no dreamed apparition
observed in the street
in excellent condition
pinning stripes, dog tooth style
whilst suiting the suit just fine
sporting tight clipped cut hair
DM cloppers highly shined
statementing one's self
drops of ox blood without pain
peeping beneath the leg
of a tailored piped drain
flashing a blonde crown
above a blued eyed stare
purposefully striding
setting apart to nowhere
confidence oozes like chocolate
a fantasy too far for man
exquisitely presented
singing catch if you can
dream on little soldiers
this bird turns for no male
long having nailed colours
to the feminine sail.



My name Is Stephen John Miles (SMiles) live in Barrow in Furness Cumbria England, I'm 53 diagnosed dyslexic at 47. Found my written voice once diagnosed and have been shouting ever since. I've a self published children's book Zac's leather elephant and a published children's book The fox the owl and the big green towel, I have a new children's book coming out later this year called Book of Zac. The books are published by Austin Macaulay. I made stories up to entertain my children all rhyming this led to the books. My break in poetry came after a friend of mine died and I wrote a poem for his funeral. Two years ago I appeared at the Bloomsbury festival in London. I write beat poems as it works well with my dyslexia. Something I feel strongly about is self expression after feeling excluded for so long. I'm not for everyone but then not everyone's for me so that makes us even.
