Living in our own little world

by quaesitor

A wonderful poem – by the irrepressible Steve Turner. To read some other ones go HERE!

EXTENSIONS
Marshall McLuhan says
that a house
is an extension
of the skin
and that a car
is an extension
of the feet.

In that case,
I suppose
garaging your car

is a bit like
swallowing your shoes.

(Up To Date, 1993, Hodder, p57)

    Fab poem – I’d forgotten that one Mark…

    You can see the explanation on Ruth Gledhill’s blog:

    …and my rather tame answers:

    Looking forward to your five! :o)

    **Merry Christmas Mark**
