Cheap Chess

Strategy-Chess1.jpg

To
play the
game to
death
a mystery woman
glides into place
only for
seconds-
love
is like
a rapid
broken
heart beat
or a record’s
scratched
black
soul crooning to a pawn’s glow
behind red wine lined glasses brimming
with rosy fireside’s espionage and … check mate.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
