BLACK SHEEP DRAWBACK

‘BLACK SHEEP DRAWBACK’

Discouraged, anxious and unsure—pitch black tarmacs start their war
Petrified, panicked and distressed—uncertainty cracks amidst unwelcomed guests
Dissociated and desensitised a perfect attack—as nervous disposition follows predictable tracks
Another prestigious black tie event—suites and shoes will seldom boycott consents

Perfected flair keeping companies in the black—elegantly formal their wives attack
Each one attired in the colour of grief—sadness and mourning a blackmailed thief
There stands Jack, in a room that is packed—emotionally elusive, cunningly drawn back
Mysterious, powerful negative dirt tracks—black-market malevolence no visible cracks

Observation, lack of confidence to engage—courage imminently pending and upstaged
An edgy apprehensive shrink-back—protection from impulsive reactive, confused attacks
Alarming blackout to opinions of others—ignoring motives of guaranteed buffers
A black sheep just got blacklisted again—anticipation of recurring hurt and pain

    Hi Kim, you should have had more faith in your early work. This is another little gem. It does show one thing, sometimes others see more in your work than you do. I've found that with myself, I have no faith at all In my work. Once again your flare and creativity come across. Another interesting piece comes before our eyes. Well this colour is dark and flows with its darkness throughout the canvas. As always your visions flow, one into the next seamlessly. I enjoyed the read....MIKE.

    I love animals and thought I'd be reading a poem about animals but I was not disappointed. I see that this was a winner as well. Congratulations!
