One poem by Christopher Barnes

Why Bother Ltd.

                         (Martini glass on secretaire.)
Half-hearted at poodlefaking?
Here’s a progression of 10 canoodling letters
In a winsomely-devised box –
Faultless when you can’t be pestered
To wrestle your own nonchalance.

CHRISTOPHER BARNES’ first collection LOVEBITES is published by Chanticleer. Each year he reads at Poetry Scotland’s Callender Poetry Weekend. He also writes art criticism which has been published in Peel and Combustus magazines.
