The moment … by D.A. Pratt


The moment …

really wanted us to be poetic
but we were only capable
of producing pedantic prose …
we parted forever without
ever knowing what the moment
had in mind for us –
if we were meant
to be creating metaphors
someone should’ve said something …

daveD.A. (David) Pratt considers himself an outsider within the society he has lived throughout his existence. He maintained an under-the-table interest in reading and writing while working for far too long for the Government of Saskatchewan in the field of taxation policy. After leaving that world, some of his poetry has begun to appear both in print and online.
