i’m the tortoise


i’m the tortoise  (  esiotrot eht m’i  )

i'm the tortoise, son of thunder

thane of merchants, trade & plunder

tablets green & votive candles

weasel schemes & flaps in sandals

shielding sheep & strumming lyres

king of swindles, gifting fires

khan of parcels, christmas sweaters

post-it notes & scribbled letters

sweating feathers of an evening

rising when the sun is beaming

in the twinkle's brightness winking

shite a flipping brick if sinking

shades of red & days of static

queues of putrid, stagnant traffic

i'm the tortoise, son of thunder

if inverted - buckle under

      no books on the horizon for now. i released one towards the end of last year. it’s called list forever … maybe i’ll put an ad on wordpress in a bit. everyone else whores themselves nowadays – so why not?
      anyways – keep it sweet by the sea
