When people get asked

how they want

to be governed

they say nothing

or better:

true

democracy

Yellow Travellers

soft cops & hard cops

find it best to turn blind eyes

to ‘difficult girls’

curiously uncurious

hobnob case conferences

 

Big Bad Wolves

Climate of fear

reign of terror

who can you trust?

No one

Never

Faulk

bathe in

the same river

Gumption

When the sun

overclouds

cold scurries up my leg.

All that hoary glory –

sadly, I was right!

This is going nowhere slow.

So slow it runs backwards

rewind hollow tat

anti-clock

wisely

bona fide

enemy of the state

Yes, gumption is a problem

They are building siege towers

Am I worthy cannon fodder?

The petrified squirrel says no

Women know when you

let go the ghost

coz you stink

Wind blusters, gusting away

remnants of claggy, stubborn night.

Wolf pack rampant roadmap

Brain damage limitation.

Camembert opaque frosted

Yellow day.

 

Insurgent tree surgeons

Big cavernous rumbles.

 

Apple tree crumbles.

Head waiter fumbles,

stumbles, tumbles.

The tray vibrates

 

gawky albatross libations

part company with host,

comic crash slapstick pratfall

radical payload scatters

 

huddled throng,

babbling surprise looks on aghast,

desultory fat barman

fetches bucket and mop,

 

mumbling vacuous

‘Sorriesirs, Moddoms…’

glaring doom on prone

crone squirming,

 

yelping victim

plaintive noises,

just made jobless

in gin and debris.

Luncheon With Eric

 

So we cut the abstract,

not like light or mayhem

See that, I missed it too

Perhaps it…no

Don’t fall for that

Luxury

Turn off the light.

Shan’t see now

This is you and me

Once immediate

Like a memory

Of

Important lightning

Morphine notches up another brother,

Another sister, father, brother as I sleep

The sleep of the dead

They still feel pain

All we feel is betrayal and loss

Like small children

Eating messy candyfloss

 

 

Scriptic

chilling on a Friday night,

running down an empty street,

waiting by a waterfall,

The Pushchair

Mind’s eye flix…instead I stalk

awkward, push his wheelchair, crossing,

three-point-turning,

tricornering, crossing back,

leant on bedstead,

with free limb, revolve said chair, repeat.

Repeat.

Repeat.

Sit and sweat and look

and realize why he smells off.

The do it again.

And again. Again.

Waiting for…forgot.

Bog cattle hugging below

Sat like the statue thinking

Halfway up on a blasted stump

Beneath a humming pylon

Beside a scruffy gorse

Sits a painted horse

Myrtle twizzling track

Made respectable by

Tarmac and white strips

Desiccated coconut flakes

Magnolia and cherry blossom

Windblown dusting cows snouts

Makes them shuffle, snort in concert

Painted horse sneezes along aloof

What?

got some treasure

fallen it was

like a woman

 

 

 

loose, heavy,

easy display:

golden showers!

 

Reef

obtuse lanquid splashes

lit dense wet grass,

teasing out

emerald,

silver crystal

ephemeral sprites:

 

like

trinkets, but too

quick, robust,

capricious to pocket,

to show off

after

 

to softer, bolder presences…

 

Noon’s Guys gathered round,

casting shorter shadows,

Origin – a higher calling:

sotto voce potentates,

you know the sort,

plotting spring offensives

left me none the wiser

 

in fact

Sort of stiff,

jabs in brachia,

pains more swamped than killed.

 

Still a worry thought

cause for concern

thence diversion.

 

Two, no three, doughnuts.

Whoosh! Guess what?

It had gone.

Wanton crayon crimes christen hallowed books

Left about to make  an impression

to go well with the curtains;

torturing the prize Siamese

just to hear its quirky hiss.

The smell of burning hair

that will be you one day.

This day, all day, every day,

but not forever.

One day you get yours

From  the Orc

On level Chesil

A Confederacy of Onceness

100-history-personalities

A chaos of familiar streets edge the hub,

smell the humming throng murmur and burr.

Was that a car door or a suicide bomb,

splatting like a bursted, maddened boil?

We look up for more, get none and get back up to pace.

Streets wail blocked with beds and wardens.

We bustle along skulking, tutting, smiling,

Snarled, peering, eyes down, anti-heroes,

Loose limbed, bloodied free climbers…

But the main sport selfie masks –

learnt as toddlers when we dodged all

punishment for our misdemeanours.

The wealth of notions,

manifold

nano-agues

quelled by herbal

detonators;

 

vigilant magpie,

looking up for it

like a ska band cover;

 

gathering storm clouds

from the unfair,

violet west:

 

all of these

and more

by invasion

define my musing,

trip me up

as I oil up

readying

 

for slippery,

deeps matters of state.

 

Excuses whisper

it is said on the

weather

it is said.

 

I collapse in

Turquoise slop,

trying to remember

What

these excuses were…

 

All power to the imagination!

 

Perspicacity:

 

When push

came to shove.

Watch the lips

Ignore the words

Spoonless in Sparta

Where was the spoon?

The Spoon – the fucking spoon!

Water was running,

Loud and constant

running water

You left the fucking tap on!

He could just make out the familiar, nasal tone.

My eyelash is awash with milk suds

Not quite a froth

Clambering from the cereal bowl

Was arduous hard

Like pond weed

And gypsy tart

The Tragic Disappearance of All Known Stuff

2262504524_bc81dd03f0_n

1

Worsted, Tweed, Galician calicos, reamed

cotton screed, diaphanous silks, dour,

coarse linens, Chinese screen tableaux

of mislaid epochs, safe and unsafe tapestries,

sad stacked in the old mead hall, the conference centre,

the hubristic hub of soft arrogance now

Abandoned.

 

2

The once sure folk have fled, melted and mutated,

The meek ones headed for the hills, they crouch

and mooch grumpy, sucking stale breadsticks

in their holes, the old caves and calcified barrows.

The diehards fought foolhardy rear-guard actions –

smouldering stockyard bone stooks  stand pyrrhic

Sacrifice

 

3

 

With the Labyrinthines gone away, nature is displeased,

Ever abhorrent of void it convenes

Bison, heck, leopard, eel and titmouse,

Louse, curlew, ptarmigan, to settle

a modus of repair. They soon conclude the obvious:

You are only as good as your last, worst
