Margot Block: “Untitled”


_in the darkness
we speak out our feelings
protected by our dimmed perceptions
words in the morning are easily denied
attributed to moonlight and wine
and you do not fool me when I touch you
you come undone when things slip into comfort
you run away and brace the winds and test your strength
because this story is nothing new
and you are not the first story waiting to happen
to spill into the sunlight

Margot Block has been writing since the age of fourteen and has been published in Zygote Magazine, Contemporary Verse 2, Juice, the Collective Consciousness, Voices, Grub Street Literary Magazine, Bakwa Magazine, Cholla Needles, and the online journals BlazeVox, Kaleidoscope Online, the Bombay Review, and Kritikos: A Postmodern Journal of Cultural Sound, Text and Image. She participated in the high school mentorship program with the Manitoba Writers Guild, working with canadian poet Carol Rose. She won first prize in a poetry contest sponsored by the Writers Collective and an honorable mention in a poetry contest with the Lake Winnipeg Writers Group.
