bat y’ earlids  (  sdilrae ‘y tab  )





touch a bud with butter fingers

flutter as a butterfly

up above a buzzard's soaring

sights are sporing in the eye


serpents stirring in the thicket

see the weasels weave a web

as the misted river ripples

roving with the flow & ebb


lick the leaves of green & gleaming

taste the rain as spiders drown

settle on a bed of petals

softer than an eiderdown


suck the sun of lemon posset

breathe the breeze of dangled knee

jangle as the ponds are croaking

thunder rumbles mugs of tea


storming swarms are humming summer

be the bumblebee & sup

hills are rolling over clover

bat y' earlids - listen up


birds are churning in the woodland

lambs are sprang as cygnets ring

circles blearing in the clearing

tongue y' twist & song a sing

...

a bearded billy goat

smokes a pipe beside the fire


in an old crofter's cottage

as a weasel fights an earwig


to the death or thereabouts

in the bowels of the woodland


& an owl shats a pellet

so the bright moon blooms

all for when it stops  (  spots ti nehw rof lla  )




poetry's the drug

singing in the kitchen sink

pull the plug & glug


scribble is a friend

running with the river mist

twist until the end


blubber as a ball

quack the stuff of rubber ducks

flutter warps & squall


brush with strokes of chin

little bits of everything

pack the fucker in


ghosts are you & i

scatter graphs & scraps of maps

spot the sea & scry


rhyme & chime a tune

row y' boat as roses glow

so & lick the moon


swan upon a lake

dance with ants as summer pants

cheese & eat y' cake


all for when it stops

death's a bloody lottery

win & dot the dots

it’s crocuses  (  sesucorc s’ti  )





rain but not a drop of snow

thunder rumbles bonuses

shimmer sun & dry the rain

bursting birds of opuses


pigs within a brightened sky

eye & spy the notices

trotters jog a memory

fill the gaps as lotuses


jangle keys & scatter seeds

sesame & open this

seven seas & lemon trees

rosy dozy dosages


sing a song of sink or spring

fuzzes in the focuses

scribble this & lick a toad

box a frog - it's crocuses


...






































































































































the clattertrap

the clattertrap  (  partrettalc eht  )




a gong upon a golden dawn

as yeoman yoke & yokels yawn

a toad upon a roman road

the splatter of a natterjack


a scrap within the afternoon

as vicars kiss & lick the moon

& snails are chasing wraiths away

as maidens milk & pavements crack


a button in the kitchen sinks

a puddle bursts, an onion winks

& covens in the oven burn

the clattertrap - it sucks us back


a squawk upon a silver eve

as dragons snap & beetles heave

the done of squall as squall is dung

til bedfordshire & shit the sack
