       Sometimes the pub is a jolly good idea after a long & harrowing day.... Or so some say...

    The door shuts behind ,
    key turns, footsteps
    stravege after
    a tedious shift;

    eyes lift up
    then revert back
    to telly, magazine,
    PS3 and tablet.

    The dining table
    is empty yet cluttered
    inhabited by non-edible
    non-essential stuff.

    "There should be
    something or other
    in the fridge,"
    a mouth points.

    "Got that, thanks."
    Footsteps stravege back,
    that's what it feels like
    to be a meal-ticket.

    The door slams shut.

      You're in need of a hot, home-cooked meal, eh?

    I can't relate really, but the scene draws me in. It's so sad. I wonder if that's how my husband feels from time to time.

    Like the others, I must agree with the exceptionally brilliant way you used such mundane words and strung them together so well. Poetry gets too flowery and angsty. Just between you and I, sometimes I feel like I'm reading a list of screen names from 13 year olds. Dragon this and bloody that.

    I don't think it's a format that'd be appropriate all te time though, but here. Here it was good. It was honest.

      I liked how you used very generic words to create a completely relatable scene. Usually I don't like words like "stuff," but in this one it portrayed a sense of boredom, almost being stuck in a rut. Feeling unappreciated and a bit lost in general. Very relatable. Thanks for sharing! :)

      I'm always intrigued when I have to look up a word, and "stravage" was no exception. It seems to stick out among the mundane or the grind. The visuals are concise yet, I feel like I've been there, in that room, perhaps even in those shoes.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
