Annie Morris

Choice

When a tired eye
saccades
the jacket-neat line
of a library shelf
from left to right
and quite
unexpectedly
collides with chance
to fixate
on an unfamiliar spine,
and a sapient hand
pulls it from place
then
the right choice
is made.


Annie Morris lives in South West London and is currently studying for an MA in Creative Writing with the Open University. As well as writing poetry she sings and writes her own songs.
