psychopomp & circumstance


psychopomp & circumstance  ( ecantsmucric & pompohcysp )


i’ve seen you since i.c.u

jackdaw of this yawning’s walk

caw a morning’s sylphid lea

bobbing in aurora’s mist


pigeon on the garden fence

chatterings of chaffinches

swishing swifts once camlann snatched

bouncing black like arthur’s chough


roundabouts & owl again

signets sing of saturn’s rings

as a hatchling winter wren

struts the stuff of pheasant legs


warble with the choral calls

chuckles under second suns

flapping neath the even’s eves

curlew as the curfew flags


lapwing laughing overhead

sights in flight for sleepless eyes

‘pon a roving afternoon’s

feathered haze of yester-daze


nightingale of waxing moons

speckled sparrow shadow man

psychopomp & circumstance

nimble winged since breath bent left













emit ginllik


emit ginllik ( killing time )

susan screw
unbuckled a shoe
      steven bland
      turned glass into sand
niamh flopflip
put a bottle in a ship
      imran chroma
      woke in a coma
christingle quartan
blossomed in autumn
      richard of yawns
      fell on his horse
helga hornet-nest
unscrambled eggs
      pete peking man
      sealed worms in a can
mick moore-least
saw the sun set in the east
      pandora pox
      stuffed her tumult in a box
antoine swan
un-sang songs
      as craig grey-sweat
      watched paint wet












staggerings  (  sgnireggats  )

replaying tape-looped

lacerated overtures

      scatter saturnalia

      i see unicorns

trains & satellites

space-time cul-de-sacs

      deep blue inbetween

      black dawn choruses

undone underling

late spring’s stinging tails

      snakes & scorpions

      seesaw seasoning

glow ghost manuscripts

pin drop passages

      let’s bee, avenues

      bean green death


talking clocks


talking clocks  (  skcolc gnikalt  )

talking clocks

sun dialogues

syntax tocks

set backs & jet packs

speeding a head

tread lead legged

spew blue cuckoos

tempus fugitive

larks in the dark

run round the mouse

up bright night

grandfather paradox

facing the grains

sand in y' hand

phantoms afoot

- on the ticks

of y' tongue



scribble piffle pen


scribble piffle pen  (  nep elffip elbbircs  )

pluck a pickled plum

pick the fruits of loop

snare the haring drum

crowing cock-a-hoop

glowing double dutch

on a rubble path

blather rabbit hutch

run the bubble's bath

overture the squall

tick another list

floating in the scrawl

suck the river's mist

cluck a rubber hen

scrambles in the head

scribble piffle pen

ink us back t' bed
