bring me my pen

~

bring me my pen  (  my other poem is si meop rehto ym  )




bring me my pen of pentecost

sing me my sheet of piffle speak

fetch me the dog that digs the pit

as doors are oars & hinges creak


lob me my loft of dancing bats

& kitchenette of sinking sand

we'll build a nu-jerusalem

in england's green & pheasant gland


sling me my mud of sodden lea

with fingertips of butterfly

squid me my ink of cuttlefish

a riddle & the cricket's cry


bring me my bow of burning gold

that chariot & arrows too

did he who made the lamb make thee?

& hurry up - & blake can sue

slot another sixpence in the blackbird meter

~

slot another sixpence in the blackbird meter  ( my other poem is gayer than tuesday )




slot another sixpence

in the blackbird meter


spot my home moon

with my new human eyes


pen a rotten sonnet

on the back of a food stamp


brush a side parting

on the palm of my hands


sail the lemon seas

in a lime green dinghy thing


ski with the yetis

in a faux-snow dome


win the tour de france

on the back - of a unicorn


butterfly with narwhals

( sans armbands )

...










































































































































toodle’s oooooooh

toodle’s oooooooh  (  based on a true story  )




shotgun michaelmas

sweet pea pepper pen

bish-bosh pocket watch

poss tot - see yuh then


hopscotch horoscope

mud-flap meeting hall

nose job oracle

oak-cloaked evening all


ballsack clarinet

cack fish gibbon shit

cracked black baritones

bat's that - skin 'n' split


earwig wizardry

pig's ear river row

how now, sunken sow?

spin-chin cheerio


coleslaw walruses

swing wing gibbon gong

frogspawn sandwiches

fat swan, sing a song


sphere cheer chariots

cancan kangaroo

tincan mattarhorn

newt's toot - toodleoooooooh

bright white sheet shite

~

blank white sheet shite  ( a seasonal scribble )




the first of the month

a crackle of popcorn

a blossom of cotton

& rabbits are wed


the chalk of the town

a clatter of chatter

as seagulls are shitting

on chefs in their nests


of dusted meringue

& cheese à la cottage

as swans sing of linen

& doves string along


with men in their coats

& albino phantoms

as mistletoe tingles

& sheep fly the flag


a knight in a van

a tower of flour

a shuffle of knuckles

the milk of the eye


& elephants lie

as sliced is the rice bread

i scribble this piffle

alone in the snow

mottoesque

~

mottoesque  ( it’s mottoesque – like a motto )


so do your do

as who hoots owls

to fish upon

& lick the stars


no brain, no drain

for sod is glove

as all tarts cake

arse for arse ache


we come to cheese

odd & my shite

the customer's

hallways are bright


so bee the breeze

as war is peas

to seize the daze

& flight the flight


caecilius est

in atrium
