selected ambient worms

~

selected ambient worms  (  smrow tneibma detceles  )




sound & round the garden

circling the earthen


spoon the sun & sparkle

tickles in a tin can


squirming in the dawn's yawn

lurking under rhubarb


rumbles in the head's stead

pastarolly the bees hum


beats upon a bonnet

sonnets in a songbook


hooks & cracks of whiplash

gurning so in slow-mo


shapes of space & tape looped

echos in the hedgerows


early birds are catching

crackles in the distance

...

























































spin the middle of the moth

~

spin the middle of the moth  (  htom eht fo elddim eht nips  )




rain is on the brain again

in the gland of sinking sand

scumbles under onion skin

cotton socks & contraband


roving with october's ghost

gargles in the arse of june

piddle peas in mizzle march

gleaming is a sugar spoon


stirring sups in cups of tea

ponce upon a kitchen sieve

calendars & colanders

bumble on & bee the div


babble in the bubble's black

spin the middle of the moth

til the bastard sings a swan

flutters on & buggers off

...























































































 

pick a pickled

~

pick a pickled  ( delkcip a kcip )


pick a pickled cabbage rhyme

acid brain & alkaline

dance a heap of steaming sheet

panting ants & pantomime


play the petered piper's bags

stitch the witch of tattered rags

hop the lair of yonder hare

may the pole & fly with flags


smoke the mope of dopamine

spilling hills as oceans gleam

figaro the river so

flap a bat & cat the cream


spot the dog & stone a prune

float with ghosts & lick the moon

pick a pickled cabbage rhyme

spiral in the afternoon

...





















 

june is a balloon

~

june is a balloon  ( noollab a si enuj )



once upon a calendar

as the moth of may

scarpers on sabbatical

larks & fades away


annually, a sort of door

creaks as finches fledge

hymns emerge from bursting beaks

singing in the hedge


canticles & clattertrap

with the woodland elves

gnomes are mowing astroturf

poems write themselves


photographs are tapestries

rabbits catch the clap

underneath a cloak of oak

shepherds wank & nap


roses glow beside the lane

snakes awake & doze

flutterings of butterfly

pollen up y' nose


gleaming is a silver stream

as the rivers run

breezes frisk the greening trees

underneath the sun


allium & lavender

blooming like the moon

summer is a gravy train

june is a balloon


roving as a floating ghost

in the spindle sky

soaring with the twinkle balls

up until july
