Reaper

 

I met him at the corner of the street

Standing behind a pillar, in a cloak;

He raised his hand as if to say,

“I know you. We have corresponded. I’ll meet you

Again.” I went away

Smiling.

 

This poem was originally called “Unhorsed” and there must have been a reason for that, but I now find I’ve no idea what that reason was, so I’ve changed the title to something a bit less obscure.

  2. I’ve remembered, I think, why it was originally called “Unhorsed” – it was a reference to the Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse. A bit obscure? Any views on “Unhorsed” versus “Reaper” as titles would be appreciated.
