Forecast by Helen Bowie

(Beir Bua’s Pushcart Nominations 2021)

WordPress has it’s limits with formatting so above is an image of this poem and below is a website taking over and telling you how it sees the poem!

An abstract radio play
Tell me a controversial opinion
Fair isle
Like income thresholds to vote
Unsolicited confessions
Falling slowly
Contempt for my suffrage
Veering south
Human rights in abstraction
Squally showers
Floating away
Thundery showers
Occasionally moderate
I stayed
Gale force 8
Until morning
Now rising
But never returned
