Top 5 Break-up Poems

Last night I watched
High Fidelity again
and the lead bloke
is still a prize knob
but anyhow here’s
a list of my top five
break-up poems :

1. ‘I can write the saddest verses’ by Pablo Neruda
2. ‘Stag’s Leap’ by Sharon Olds
3. ‘Epiphany’ by Ted Hughes
4. ‘Sleeping Keys’ by Jean Sprackland
5. ‘One Art’ by Elizabeth Bishop
