The Unexpected Optimist.

The Unexpected Optimist.

A Poem by R.A Butler.

A real rough sketch but lets call it a 'first draft'. Another early morning poem.


The Unexpected Optimist.


Half awake in Katy's room,

Early sound of lazy metallic

Dawn from the avenue outside,

Underwear and aerosol cans,

Strewn about the place,

Drunk-sick regret laying

In tailored trousers alone

On her island bed.

Last night invisible kisses,

Struck her on the cheek,

My lustful teenage wishes,

And how long will it be, a week?

Or a day or a year?

Before the unexpected optimist

Wants me - only me here.

R.A.B, 2011.
