Entry - MAG Poetry Prize 2010


by TL Wyachai

Writing as an act of self-defence
Writing as an act of violence
Writing as an act of anger
Writing as a punch to faith

Why can humans not be people
Why can't people plainly see
Why are humans just such people
Why so never you and me

Send along your fine white paper
Send along your colored thread
Send along your pins and needles
Send along your words long dead

Never will they mend their fences
Never their will strong to end
Never strong they fence out errors
Never erring, they never bend.
