The Friday Poem: ‘Small Town Blues’ by Brian Turner

fridaypoem

New verse by Oturehua writer Brian Turner.

 

Small Town Blues

 

To hell with the songs

of birds, the buzzing of bees

and the breeze

breathing in the trees,

 

there’s always someone

who thinks the whole

village appreciates

their taste in music.

 

Brian Turner, 2018
