New Poem of the Month for December - Thief

A buckle
where her mouth should be.
Clasped shut
sanded to a copper finish.

She was silenced from birth,
born with a stainless steel spine
and the thoughts
of an enlightened thief.

This is another one of my 'Steampunk Poetry' experiments and it didn't even have a title until I started writing this post! lol I thought it was a nice short one to share with you all and I particularly like the ending. I have noticed that I mostly write about women - their emotions, feelings, how they grow and learn. My play 'Dragonflies in Amber' is about two women. One is the Dreamer and the other, the Narrator is her 'other side' i.e - subconscious, imaginary friend etc. - it is about dreams and finding out who she is and why she acts the way she does. The dreams delve into every part of her (childhood, relationships, friendships) 

Things here are getting quite frantic and busy, which is great! I have found one actress to play one of the female characters on the 11th at Scratch @ Fruit - wow, it's just dawned on me that that is just 10 days away now! (panic). I was quite flippantly saying 'it's not till next month' until today, I had better get a move on! There are sadly no more of my female writers group classes until the New Year, but there is the huge brightness that is Christmas - I love Christmas, it is my favourite time of the year. Carl has always said that I made him more excited about Christmas by just being with me. And of course, this is my first Christmas as a married lady! but then the whole first year is a year of 'firsts' isn't it?

Hope you all have a great weekend :)
