another peek inside ladders and snakes illustrated poetry

Jumble Man

Fresh dust for old thought What you take is what you brought Bin bag clothes sorted and bought Bring a donation and keep it taut A tidal wave of second hand gifts

Used objects for extra lifts A first rate reject on the rail A mixed up mosaic of self for sale

Memories dumped from box to box,

Slap dash trash worn out shoes and odd socks

Bric a brac from candlesticks to clocks.

This is shirt land hat stands and party frocks

Poet David Gardner
