revolution 432

~

revolution 432  (  234 noitulover  )






seasons gleamings

feathered friends

dusters


cauliflower

cotton cloud

clusters


sputters utter

spiders spin

spirals


pickled cabbage

sandwiches

cycles


spins the middle

of the month's

morning


crunching numbers

thunder drums

warning


so, a poem

rivers twist

melons


summer salad

ballads suck

lemons


seven sisters

cygnus sings

swansongs


silver bullets

scatter graphs

long johns


startled starlings

starting go's

stopwatch


pocus hocus

broken toe

hopscotch


...

( author notes )

i stole the title of this poem from a book

revolution 432 is the name of a chapter

in the cygnus key by andrew collins

a fascinating read

which didn't really inspire this little scribble

beyond me nicking the title

but credit where credit's due

as all forms of plagiarism are utterly deplorable

i sigh with my spittle aye –

i sigh with my spittle i –  (  – eya elttips ym htiw ym htiw hgis i  )




i sigh

with my spittle aye


the lies in the eyes

of woodland weasels


the dung on the tongue

of spineless spies


bees in a sonnet

& village busybodies


barking at snarks

& parping with parsnips


flaps with the bats

gaslights & gobshites


spouting out venom

& running from echoes


the hare in a snare

is their own silhouette

& yet more things to write about

& yet more things to write about   (  tuoba etirw ot sgniht erom tey &  )




the hole in last saturday's

black anorak

syntax saddle wax

cold sores or coleslaw

hyacinths & hierophants

hot water bottles

passengers on paper planes

crashing in the bin

bubblewrap & moonlight

this is not a shopping list

swansongs from cygnus

lemon scented lententide

bright white poltergeists

daffodils & mistletoe

toad shit & toad stools

- luminescent insects

inner-diplodocus

~

inner-diplodocus  (  sucodolpid-renni  )





hooded badger dances

in a wooded glade

dangle hang the branches

swans upon a fade


pantomime is stirring

phantoms paint the sky

cottages are burning

as a wicker guy


grey's a television

beige is in the air

shades of repetition

pale's a mountain hare


sound & round in circles

lick the salted stones

speak of sleep in thermals

winter whips the bones


vee's a skein of goslings

sea the green of moss

like the skin of goblins

shining in the dross


robins bob but apples

rot amongst the muck

yon's the black of chapels

headless chickens cluck


pen the death of horus

sepulchure the air

autumn is a tortoise

snoring with the bear


inner-diplodocus

lick the witches' toad

sing until the crocus

springs another ode
