the tumble diver


the tumble diver  (  a  p o e m  )

dangled legs & scrambled ciphers

lizards licking bishop's mitres

rubber lips & singing kettles

vapour planes the wafer tigers

father thames & uncle tiber

spartans warring tartan pipers

fingertips & stinging nettles

cockles warm the cock in cider

headless nuns & phantom hikers

otters sparring martian spiders

ombudsman & sinking vessels

eiders duck the river sniper

dungeon tongues & tungsten vipers

lighting striking paragliders

swishing fish & sniffing petals

spittle spins the tumble diver
