Song For A Friend by Wren Sasaki
Price: Free! Words: 90. Language: English. Published: December 4, 2008. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry(4.33 from 3 reviews)
This is a very short poem, so I feel any lengthy description would really be counter productive. I wrote it for a friend, not myself, but I have found that it has the propensity to make me feel better as well. I hope it can brighten your day.

Optegnelser, prosadigte og breve samlet under betegnelsen poesi. Et tilsyneladende selvbiografisk jeg er optaget af billeder; primært motiver som rorschachtavler, stilleben-, portræt- og landskabsmaleri. Der er et mellemværende med disse motiver og en lyst til at beskrive og undersøge klicheer og associationer.

Jenny, the office mouse, whose literary aspirations suffocate in the corner cubicle of a large city publisher, is innocently deluded by a chance trail of love left by a phantom poet.
