Slowly Unlocked – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

dVerse Poets – The Perfect Seven Lines

Frank at dVerse has invited us to write a poem of our choosing – the challenge is to write only seven lines (I’m not sure about perfect lines though).




“The only virtue is reckless love.”  Arif Naseem

Slowly Unlocked

Waylaid, I ordered tea,
the streets were empty, though
this one was unknown to me,
her entrance was undeclared
though not unnoticed and we
slowly unlocked our dreams
in this strangest of times.
