ice came, ice thaw, ice conquered

~

ice came, ice thaw, ice conquered  (  dereuqnoc eci, waht eci, emac eci  )






the earth's an urn, a trudge of fudge

a phantom land upon the close

a sliding scale, a trail of sludge

a poet stirs, the serpents doze


a circle sings & stone is air

the crocus croak but not a frog

& night has flown but white's the hare

that's boxing in this belching bog


of squelching ground - the sound of swan

within the mists of in between

a sodden hymn, the gift of gone

a dance before this gland of green


is fever struck & strings are plucked

the woodland drips & all is thaw

as spring's unplugged but winter's fucked

the rest is wet, the rivers roar

pen then pen  (  nep neht nep  )







pen then pen

pepper crusted pencil necks


cut throat cuttlefish

slo-mo interlude


glue gun dog

sunken onion scatterings


bigwig little owl

mud brown trouser press


bright white light

lemon scented lententide


long, black cul-de-sac

catnap caravan


gleam green stream

seven sister planetoids


android adenoids

alabaster anorak

fading embers blacken

frozen elm blossom

fucking ether bonnets

floating earwig balladeers

feathered elfin bungalows

faraway's early birds

fried enzyme breadcrumbs

foxes eating breakfast

farting endamame beans

forgetful elephants blunder

fourteen ermine bursaries

fifteen eels bongo

frisking eastern breezes

filling egg baskets

flagellating easter's bollocks

for every badger

lemon lententide

lemon lententide  (  editnetnel nomel  )






swans upon a blossoming

boxing hares & swivel chairs

bicycles & icicles

cycles cyanide


diabetic hierophant

kiss the blizzard's lizard lips

broken biscuit blitherings

dog & bona fide


catalytic christenings

spin within the crystal air

is there life on marzipan?

lemon lententide


flapping phantom handlebars

purple myrtle myrmidons

mercury's a silver stream

rivers mystified

another fucking leap year poem

another fucking leap year poem  (  meop raey pael gnikcuf rehtona  )





january has fleas

but february is feathery



as spring sparks larks in march

& april's acrobaticals


with faith in may's eight maidens

looping blooming june's moons


higher in july

& hopping forth in august


'til september's ninja squirrels

& the bog frogs of october


float over november's ghost

december's dead

- & then


( ? )
