sky fives  (  sevif yks  )




~


over horizons

split like a flatfish

scatters of mackerel

oceans above us

redder than herrings


~


warning the morning

tremble's a shepherd

horus's yawning

elder & younger

rumbles of thunder


~


thor in his attic

crackles of static

smashing & passing

cracks in the walrus

circles of buzzards


~


zeus on his broomstick

swoops with laputa

then in the welkin

belenus sinking

phosphorus winking


~


hecates sneezes

cheese & breezes

sniff it & spin it

this is the limit

up in the yonder

weasels ate my sleep ( again ) …

weasels ate my sleep ( again ) …  ( insert backwards title here )





goblins guzzle golf balls

swans have sung to cygnus

glum has gone to iceland

bitches bubble broth


intermittent backspin

choruses of walrus

hieroglyphic toad spawn

telephonic quaff


luminescent insects

diabetic pupae

poetry's a robot

peaks are in me trough


pissing streams of paper

otter oscillator

pens are friends of comas

pencils nodding off

...




 








 

inner-nutshells

inner-nutshells  (  sllehs-renni  )






in a nutshell - squirrels gather

grey's the daze but may is hazel


winter's brittle, numbers crunching

frothing gobs & speak in seasons


salad blathers streams & rivers

breezes sneezing, branches quiver


stars & sparkles - reams of paper

missing marbles, maids-a-milking


hills & dingles, kitchens sinking

bluster fingers, grip is slipping


march is marching, spring is onions

august calling, autumn falling


all is almonds, monkeys munching

green's a valley, finches singing


in a nutshell - inner-nutshells

t'other earths

& other nutters

( soz )


...





( author notes )


true truths -  not thirteen's weasel shit

wear black tracky-beez


let them white togs hang

like a babylonian rockery


breathe in scapes & shapes of sleep

& cleanse this double-murder village


this is not a shopping list

( so )

never eat shredded wheat

for whom the bell ends …  (  … sdne lleb eht mohw rof  )




blooming blue lunatics

seeking silver light


lullabies, succubi

as the buggers bite


myrmidons murmuring

mercury & hark


magic beans, majesty

rabid badgers bark


speckle then, pecking hens

rubber chicken neck


flutter cups, frozen beams

floating - flippin' 'eck


sea shanties, cheese pantries

sweet selene & me


crater-faced clatterings

- campanology


...


























































































































































 

… ti no peels

~

… ti no peels  (  sleep on it …  )





clutter above the

flow of a river

bee with the roses

crunch in the woodland


under the thunder

scatters of cushions

raining & draining

time is an onion


leaves on the lining

pan on his panpipes

dog in a manger

cat on a mattress


bird over clover

lemonade weather

daze of cheese salad

feathers & fleeces


...
