Antique Silver Knife.


I have a silver knife,

an antique picked up

from a market stall

in South London, a depiction

of a car, old as the time that

the Hallmark suggests,

I wrote a snappy poem

and put the picture up

on social media,

it wouldn’t load,

I only asked

if friends knew where they

would plunge it in me.
