Poem For a Lovely August Day By British Poet Marc Carver

A poem by Marc Carver here on a lovely afternoon at Zombie Logic Review.


I sat in the back of the cab
looking for money.
A man came up to the cab
He asked for directions
that he didn't want.
He took a look at me
with my beard
and long hair.
He decided I was rough
even for this part of town.
So he walked off
in the wrong direction
and the Asian taxi driver
didn't know how close
he was to being robbed
or killed.

Marc Carver, a British poet, was recently an internationally featured
