Some Boys Have Tricks

Just that one Girl

From A.S Kings Novel “I crawl through it” which is one of my favourite books. The first book that really made me think on several levels.

Some Boys Have Tricks

We believe them like

we believe the weatherman

when he predicts snow

and when he’s wrong, we shrug

and blame ourselves for

ever believing him.

Very sad thought provoking poem about what it means to be a victim and what it means to be “played”: A.S King writes with such eloquence, it never fails to astound me. In this book (which I am reading for the 3rd time) one of the characters is a poet who simply writes the most amazing poems. Maybe I’ll share a few more of them some time, they are definitely worth reading.
