META-POEM LEADING TO A POEM; BY STEVEN BENSON

What is it

That

Makes a

Poem?

……

Is it

Images

Metaphors,

Similes?;

Is it

Emotion and

Thought

Well-expressed?

Is it a strict
Metre

Or free

Verse?

………

It is

All of these.

POEM

… ..So i sit

In the Bluecoat

The “hub” of the

Arts World

Of

Liverpool; and

I write

This

Poem

{inspired by Farley and Roberts “Edgelands:Journeys into England’s True Wilderness, 2011}…

I live on/in

The edgelands.

These are

Psychological and

Geographical

Spaces

At the

Margins

Of society

And urban

Landscape.

But MY

Margins

Are not

Retail parks

But Bold Street,

Lark Lane, and

Stanley Street…

What makes us

Attracted to certain

Spaces?……..

It is where

I feel

Comfortable,I

Belong;

Outside or

Alongside

(A bit of both)

The relentless

Heavy

Juggernaut of the

Mainstream…..

It is where I

Feel at

Home
