Matt La Faci’s Top Ten Poetic Lines of 2013

A lot can happen in a year! 2013 was a busy one for me, here’s a countdown of the top ten poetic lines I wrote this year as chosen by me, Matt La Faci.

10.

Your Cheek

in the rain,

Soft

like wet Clay.

Ready,

for my

Impression.

9.

Wood Green is

concrete gray.

Oh the irony,

8.

A glass of red wine,

one brilliant white carpet.

Please handle your shit.

7.

The red right hand of God,

bent to a G chord,

As Satan and Nick Cave,

Listen on.

Bored.

6.

And faith’s an int’resting thing,

hanging from a piece of string.

5.

Colourblind!

The train disappears.

Your smile, as always,

allays my

Fears.

4.

and the

piercing

white

light

of your memory.

On the days when I can’t not remember you,

3.

our destructive wit. Destroying our soul,

making us old.

2.

And

a whole year, since the world ended.

With nothing to show,

but a poem.

Splendid.

1.

As we raise our balmy heads, from just below the clouds

How can you say it wasn’t perfect?

How can you say I wasn’t proud?

 

Tongue firmly in cheek.
