Well Wishers Well

Well Wishers Well

written by: SMiles



Before the day passes and the others have preceded
gilded by nothings, bejewelled with mundane blissfulness
a normality record plays repeat, rolling the dice once a week
maybe twice, thrice, until the week, became weak

a month, a year, a forever……..and then more
the hazard brakes failing to stop, even to slow
Mediterranean Cephalopod ink, clouds judgements
Flambéing the brain to a Calamari with a sealed Retsina

this day’s passed before, as a minds Deja vu
a drink fuelled first happy, last said, sad affair
waking to a falling down, a pitiful merry-go-round
borrowing to pay Peter, hiding away from Paul

arriving at a street near you, the reckoning day
a downward crash, Tyson meets Gandhi epic
as the clocks tick, time bides its wait, for a seconds out
new wounds heal, but old forget the lesson

and the bitten once, are chewed again
swirling, in a barely alive, fight for breath
circling, spinning the buttholes abyss
circumnavigating spirals without finesse

no takers for wagers as the outcomes, an odds on
the pickled pink liquid sack, verses, the afflicted addictionary
before you man, a memories reflection to the looking on
a wishing well filled with resignation from well wishers.



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.
