Stalker by Paul Brookes

I tried to steal a glance
at a Robin, but his CCTV
was too wick and his security
was too quickly in evidence.

Robin said I was a stalker,
full of cliched excuses,
lame reasons and other abuses.
I said I was a bird watcher.

Paul Brookes was poetry performer with “Rats for Love” and his work included in “Rats for Love: The Book”, Bristol Broadsides, 1990. His first chapbook was “The Fabulous Invention Of Barnsley”, Dearne Community Arts, 1993. He has read his work on BBC Radio Bristol and had a creative writing workshop for sixth formers broadcast on BBC Radio Five Live.
