Origami Men – Shelley Ford

the lost boys

The hustle and bustle of the city inspired Shelley Ford’s poem ‘Origami’. Shelley has been interested in poetry since she was a small child and often draws upon personal experience and hardship to be creative. We really appreciate her kind support and thank her for taking time to submit her work. Shelley’s Instagram name is: a_frozenrose

Origami men

Rolex chain

Fifty shades of Grey

Painted all the same

Boxes on a hill side

Picket fence forts

Where insecurities hide

Office realities

Once a little boys den

The lost boys


Into origami men.

Shelley Ford
