EDITOR’S CHOICE: Orphan

EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD: Bringing our favorite previously-published poems back to the front page.

Submitted by Kim Whysall-Hammond

Poetry is the orphan of silence
Begging for attention
Word spaces and line breaks
Her crutches

Whatever the poem describes to you
Is  a shadow
A portion, a flavour
Of what the poet is trying to say
