A Poem by Adam Lee

Thomas Hardy

Spare us a thought

as you stumble on 
down the inclined slope
of the long gone. Because 

you and others that
knew Life for what it was

-and is-

would have shuddered
if you could have intuited 
what the not-too-distant

future would do to the alienated.

Adam lives and works as a bid writer in Manchester. Over the years he has studied English Literature, Psychology and History. He is interested in writing a poetics of subjectivity, like his hero John Ashbery. He has never been published before.
