Pecking Order by Bryn Fortey

It was just another Christmas kiss
A peck
Nothing more, nothing less

Three laughingly accepted
But you pulled away
Saying: “I’m not that easy.”

I had never thought of you in that context
Not until then
Not until you pulled away

It was just another Christmas kiss
A peck
“I’m not that easy,” you said

But you were
My dear
You most decidedly were

A veteran of the writing game for more years than he cares to remember, Bryn Fortey edited the well received (at the time) OUTLAW, a post-Beat poetry magazine from the 70s and at the same time had short stories in FONTANA anthologies, among others. After a while away from the literary scene he recently returned with both fiction and poetry acceptances. In 2014 The Alchemy Press published his debut collection MERRY-GO-ROUND, combining short stories and poetry in one book.
