NaPoWriMo 4.12: Ways of Looking

3149yfpty2l-_sy450_

Yes, it’s very much like this one.

In haste, this morning…

Yesterday, I ran a group with some young people in which we looked at Wallace Stevens’ ‘Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird’.

Then we explored looking at something in five ways (no time for thirteen in the session!)…and this is what I wrote:

Five Ways of Looking at the Coffee Grinder

I.
Caffeine sentinel
In the corner, the coffee grinder
Keeps watch, all night.

II.
He buys us very thoughtful
Gifts, like this: a coffee grinder
Which gets used less and less.

III.
Once hand-cranked, now the coffee grinder
Takes its power from the mains.

IV.
In the aisle of Tesco, I puzzle
Over the Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade logo;
Which will channel the least
Evil through the coffee grinder.

V.
A man and a man
Are one.
A man and a man and a coffee grinder
Are a family.

  1. “A man and a man and a coffee grinder are a family” Love this 🙂 Needs to be put on cards and all sorts.
    Can my day get any better? X
