Day Four: 'The Little that Tells a Story' by Jackie Hagan

The Little that Tells a Story

Lopsided scars,
little staggering hatred,
curious oddball fears.
It’s the dents that make you interesting.

Perfect silver sphere,
I prefer jumble sales,
The horsefly of the eccentric,
The smell of soil sewn in the scrap.

The broken bits fixed,
The broken bits broken,
The dark corners and under the table.

The loved so hard it hurts,
The loved too little,
The little that tells a story.

Jackie Hagan
