Poem of the Week - 'The Man Who Never Was' by Tom Kelly

Posted on April 19, 2016 by Yen-Yen Lu | 0 comments

The Man Who Never Was

There's a man with aa axe 
in me bedroom. We ran to her house
in fright, night after night.

'Axe Man' was never caught
even though she described him
in perfect detail, as far as we could tell,
tall, dark, carrying an axe.



This chilling poem comes from Tom Kelly's collection, I Know Their Footsteps, which includes other similar poems on death, ageing, and regret. Available on our website
