Work in Progress

Perogatory

Whatever you've come here to get

Try to forget it
It is so inhumane, replaceable,
Maybe you were looking for love
or food, some temporary satiation
I ask you
How do you greet a git?
Tell him G’day
The way we say
Not okay

Is it with a cut
a gesture, or
wave goodbye?

No matter.
I can not help
you.
I am unknown among the living.

(The lines linked are part of the poem.)


The poem I wrote this week took me on an adventure. It began when on some lark, I clicked on a bookmark that I had saved who knows when, I am guessing Nov06 or before,
Guardian's Poetry Workshop

Wow, I had seen this in a Poetry Thursday comment last week (I had ignored it at the time). So i grabbed a "W S Graham first line" and well...the next thing i knew I was on Wordie.
looking for alternate definitions of my title, I have ideas about it bastardization, and ended up discovering Bonnie Jones.

I invite you to share the adventure, no directions provided as that is part of it all!
