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
      peace
