A Policeman

He is black.
a simple winter evening
out on the streets.
He is cloudy;
a stiff, stern uniform
behind a messy desk.
He is law and order,
a small bunch of inedible sour grapes...

Nice description even though I'm figuring this one if its specific or generic. Doesn't matter though. For a going-to-be nineteen year old, you're doing just great. Cheers. Subroto
Interesting portrayal of a police officer. I note that you refer to 'he' and I wonder if this is a person you know rather than a generic description. Many police officers that I know in Canada, are actually fun loving people who have a concern for people and just want a normal family life...the same as the rest of us. Interesting poem. Hugs, Dee
Very cool. I read your poem haertache but I like this much more. I love the last line.
Simply impressive, the poet has more than is yet seen or read.
Very effective metaphors here Londiwe.
