“Handsome words don't butter cabbage.” German saying
And my writing prompt for today is going to be ... ugly words.

Ugly words
turn of beauty
can not look beyond fire-rim
circling a dark sky in autumn

So much to say and so little
time in which to speak our
selves silly in the long run

Sagas - epics - fairytale of
Cinderella and Snow White
fighting on a patch of wasteland

at Ballymun flats for Prince
Charming in a reved-up Ford Capri

or was it a Cortina my scent of

In plaid scarve and practical duffle
we'll go up the top of Bold Streeet and drink tea at the Cafe Tabac

make one last pilgrimage to Quiggans
and touch a dissapearing sky we'll

return to one day
when life's last gasp is gulped
and gone.

Through the laneways of Liverpool we'll lose ourselves.
