Life Well Seen – A Poem

You ever walk up a flight of concrete stairs
and wonder who poured the cement?
How long until it starts to crack?
And how many winters it can survive
until the cement needs to be ripped out
and new steps need to be created?

I decided to submit poetry again and I turned toward Spillwords Press, NYC, whom have treated me excellently for a number of years. Cheers everyone!

Poem up on Ephemeral Elegies

Yes! I’m thrilled to share that my poem, Rain, has found a home with Ephemeral Elegies.

Rain by M. Taggart

Here’s a snippet, but please take a moment to read the full poem via the link below:

I don’t write about flowers
or love, or the embrace of a lover
because so many
do this so wonderfully
that I would rather read
their version of beauty
than replay mine.

Rain by M. Taggart

I especially enjoy Ephemeral Elegies niche found on the about page,

“Welcome to Ephemeral Elegies – the home for poems about emotional experiences. Inspired by confessional poets such as Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath, we invite submissions about personal experiences and reflections. Confessional poetry can be a great catharsis for a poet, and we want to support you on your journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing..”

I felt at home when reading this and didn’t hesitate to submit.

Enjoy, and have a great day.

Matt

 

The Drabble

One of the best I’ve ever written.

A girl. A thought. Yellow.

‘People think I’m crazy. I think a lot. I think when I think. If my eyes seem volatile, they may be, or I’m lost in a non-linear perpetual sliding thought and when I break my mind I come out of it.’

Read it here, on The Drabble.

My poem ‘Here’ published by Literary Yard

I’m thrilled to share with everyone that my poem ‘Here’ has literally just been published, only moments ago, on Literary Yard.

A big thank you to Onkar Sharma for accepting this piece. This style of poetry is unorthodox and is my self taught style. I’m impressed with Literary Yard for picking this up.

“Here-

A piece of mind is a funny thing
flecking out among the trees

Somewhere we leave a laugh
looking for a smile”
