Anthony Ward’s most recent poem to appear here was Anger (May 2012).
By Anthony Ward
With his rolling eyes
While gaining bulk,
They turned him into a man.
Sticking fossils into his eyes and mouth,
Dressing him in their old clothes,
Taking great pleasure in admiring their new friend
Whom they soon forgot about,
Leaving him to melt into a pool of ice–
Trodden away to nothing.
