Coat by Vicki Feaver (1943-)

I have decided to add some poems I enjoy to this blog site to show you some real artists at work.  I hope it is clear enough that they are not by me!

Here’s one I came across in 2010 – I love imagining the feeling of the heavy coat.

Coat by Vicki Feaver (1943-)
Sometimes I have wanted

to throw you off

like a heavy coat.

Sometimes I have said

you would not let me

breathe or move.

But now that I am free

to choose light clothes

or none at all

I feel the cold

and all the time I think

how warm it used to be.

-Vicki Feaver (1943-)
