Inevitable Ending?

Narrowed Down to Nothing

forced to find an alibi
in five minutes
a gesture of despair
rain.
afraid
exhausted
there can be no pardon for the informer
he saw the edge of the cliff
in the distance

  1. Thank you! I really like doing poetry in this collage-style way and how words seem to assemble themselves into something coherent (sometimes more, sometimes less!) in front of my eyes. I like how this one worked out. Thanks for reading!

  2. Thank you. As I was working on this poem I thought of suspense or thriller novels (I like to read them) myself. I like to wonder if the main character is going to survive or not, and if so, how, and this is how this poem makes me feel. Thanks for reading!
