hang the cliché

hang the cliché  (  éhcilc  eht gnah  )






snow, my sweet crab apple

of my hind's eyepatch


lo, the sunset is mould

but the bread smells of noses


& the hills are a hive

as my harp is aflame


& the turds sing a dove

off the lame hymn sheet


so the twat has nine lives

& the garden is dozy


like a squawk in the park

or a scab in the dark


in the blink of a pie

with a sink & a cod


i am frost in your thighs

like a rabbit

in your head lice


( ? )

untitled poem things  (  sgniht meop deltitnu  )




untitled poem things

sing with the winter wren

penned as the kettle sings


spawn of the morning's odes

yawning in analogue

frog hops & crawling toads


crows of the cockatoos

tea of the clipper ship

hip hip hypotenuse


tones of the broken clocks

building with rubber bricks

ticks & then token tocks


slugs in the underscores

drumming in triple slime

rhyming with thunder roars


pickle me vegetables

clover & overstep

peppermint sentinels


dogwood & spinning plates

cloaked in an oaken hood

wood chip & figure eights


sucking as lemon curds

summer is riddled pink

ink blots & bursts of birds


flaps as the chatter runs

suns as the clatter clapped

chapped lips & scatter guns


shoot as the budded leaves

nip as the ninja gnat

shat of the basket's weaves


shades of the sunless skies

wraiths in a comet's tail

stale bread & butterflies


rip tides & broken wings

spin as the spindle's spun

satsuma star  (  rats amustas  )





satsuma star

rise like the shining


still sunken sun

citric & sparkles


swoop in the mute

yawns of the morning


ghost of a sky

phantom of plasma


over the leas

carotene phoenix


i with my eyes

stand on the rec's edge


five twenty five

spins on a sixpence


swan in a squint

sweet ginger ninja

( bracken english )  ( hsilgne nekcarb )





bracken english - brocks & foxes

tongues in brambles, frogs in boxes


speak in seasons, springs & winters

clutching storms with butter fingers


whistle thistles, thorns & teasels

lizard queens & village weasels


flea the fodder, toss & stirrers

mist is sylphid, meat is murmurs


phantoms flapping as the clappers

river diction, spit the pastures


spot a coppice - specks & freckles

kettles steaming, sing in nettles


bee in clover, sleep in comas

broken biscuits, moss on stoners


we phoenecians, slackened linguists

squawk the talk of bracken english
