Gnivri Puts Away The Shroud. By CpSingleton © 2017
When Gnivri contemplates death,
He realises there’s much he
He knows when the Spanish war ended and
What influential writer
Played his part, but
There are unanswered wonderings.
It’s his safeguard.
A thought asks,
What does a starling sound like
When they sing?
Why immortalise the cuckoo
In a clock?
What is behind the last door?
These thoughts give birth to
His sense of Fuck You.
Those questions move his left side
Followed by his right.
