Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


This rock was here when I was small,
I used to sit on it, my own little throne,
but now a shrub has grown
and I have to push it back
to see my make-believe world -
funny what sophistication does.

Written when I was a teen.

    I like this teenage 'shorty' of yours -- enjoyed the glimpse into your past writings(your 'genesis' teenage poems).
