Old comforts

has been withdrawn
to leave my altered
place hollowed –
no valued fixtures –
no matter what
is placed within

My cooking practices
are poor –
as you foresaw
a year ago – when you said
I’ll still look after you
but I’ll be making love
to someone else

Mike Bell Poetry

Mike Bell aims to write 10,000 poems, stick them up here one at a time, and then take a nap. By then he should be about 85 years old and have out-gunned PD, dementia, and the end of days. Possibly. Before the floods and fires. Mike Bell is found working for money as a freelance set designer.
