Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today is a little different as I am giving you a verse from a poem.  On my bedside at present is a slim stylish book of poetry by Lynn Gerrard, Darkness and Decadence – the Grumblings of a Gargoyle. The dark side of our lives is reflected in the verses, often with humour and always with exquisite words.  The poems make me think so are ideal to read just before sleep- or are they?!  I give you the first verse of a poem called The Me We Are.

 How can we ever
“Find ourselves”
When every day
We’re someone else?
“What do you mean by that?”
I hear you ask.

To read the answer to that question you will have to buy this intriguing book of poems.
