Between the lines

 Between the lines
           for Len Fox

I was moved
by many of your poems -
impressed by the way
they looked
the world straight
in the eye - yet when I thought
I had them sussed - they bent
twisted or even
smiled between
the lines. I admired
their simple
complex politics -
the way they liked
respected people
trees even slugs.
The firm belief
contained within that
one day wars would
cease and humankind
would live in peace.
Yet basically
it's the lack of bullshit
I like the most about
your poems
