Marta Thinks: ‘wednesday runaways’ is a simple poem, full of simple words and a simple meaning.
There are no grand gestures or words. It is there, for you to read and absorb. After all, runaway lovers is a common enough theme. Despite this, there is something new about this particular piece, this specific line: ‘two stupid teenagers in what they thought was love’. It makes you think. Is the poet right? Or is she voicing the opinion of others and we will never know? The decision is up to you and I think this makes this poem especially magical.
