Someone posted these in the middle of a fanfiction about a character learning to write essays for his college class- his tutor was a poet, and theoretically the tutor wrote these. I kind of love them, but I don't know who to credit for these words. For now:
By winterhill, on Archiveofourown.org



I saw a woman with a tiny dog.
She laughed at me and I
realised that maybe
my eyes are a
two way street.

my breath fills the space until I

Sleeping under Earth
waiting for my time to rise.

When I write,
my eyes are as
dark as
inkwells.
I spill
across pages,
unapologetic.

No-one ever asks
the crescent moon

I fear
That the end of my life’s quest will be
Like the end of the Holy Grail
Bundled off by the police
With no resolution.



(I asked winterhill who the author is- as have others since the story was posted, in 2010. No answer, and googling individual lines or whole poems gets nothing. Could it be original?)
