Town Hall, Chipping Norton Dreams and Memes

(written during my author table slot at Chipping Norton Literary Festival – come to our FREE fringe event tonight to hear it)

boards of favourite words

listening to snippets overheard

a turn of phrase

discreet pieces of praise

reminiscences of better days

jabbering

yammering voices

stammering to make the choice

to express the fears

they kept repressed

till faces fall depressed

the thought remains suppressed

beneath the weight of too many years

and they return

to press their pillows with their tears.
