Teetering Potential

Scarlett Kefford looks at broken rules and misused power in her poem on gameplay and love

by Scarlett Kefford


I’m the worst Queen,
too afraid to check my mate.
Resistible game play

I’ve been entered
against my will again.
Rather sacrifice myself

to save another knock
back, cold treading the
kitchen tiles. Black & off white.

Scarlett Kefford | @scarlettroses_

This poem was taken from Scarlett’s first collection of poetry, Finding Home, which is available to buy here.

Scarlett is a 23-year-old award-nominated screenwriter and poet only moonlighting as a PA because disaster restoration and repair insurance is sexy.
