four saplings ( sgnilpas ruof )

 

a magnetic birch
an ever-burning ash
an invisible alder
& a monkey puzzle solver

yesterday’s poem

~

yesterday’s poem ( meop s’yadretsey )

 

a florist sneezed
the fledglings flapped
it smelled of ants
in underpants
& pickled eggs
in cable cars
the night was dim
with sable stars
the dawn was yawns
of troubadours
with iridescent
interludes
but whenabouts
the paper came
the vicar kissed
a hobgoblin
the baker burnt
the macaroons
& garden gnomes
were far from home
the roads were carp
& cuttlefish
the bus broke down
a dowser drowned
as badgers slept
in woodland setts
a pigeon shat
upon my cap
so raining toads
by half past four
& everyone
ate flapjack

erom & rehtruf

erom & rehtruf  (  further & more  )

 

kiss this river mist
grow your own toenails
these are the tails
of a comet in the pocket
of a cabbage in the attic
& a pillock on a hillock
in a green & pheasant gland
underneath a blue cagoule
of a hierophantic sky
so the scatters in a graph
stick like jam in odds ‘n’ socks
yet the music’s mutant glue
is the lane upon the rain
& a phantom in the fro
so the layman lasers ray
lemon cheesy breezes crow
like a scribble on the chin
or an otter on the sun
while a stegosaurus snores
in a hall of rubber walls
yet the bend is roundabouts
& a leaden pencil shouts
– unsung bookworms
squirming in my library

the all of almonds

the all of almonds  (  sdnomla fo lla eht  )






lick a leaden pencil

pick a pickled pepperpot


pluck the strings of vernal

vests - & peck the feather rot


suck a lecking lemon

bird the blurs & grouse the house


sound around the garden

lark a sunken summerhouse


squall a falling autumn

colander a calendar


bumble in the jumble's

sea & bee the manager


scrawl the all of almonds

scribble in the april rain


scrambles in the attic

chasing paper planes agin

gnicuob  (  bouncing  )






like a magic bean

on a trampoline


as the pippet sings

& the onion springs


spirals in the mind

pillared posts behind


fading greys & blacks

hopping winter's tracks


frog with the gnu

shades of kangaroo


cronus sews the dales

chasing tiggered tails


green the leaves of brown

bobbing up & down


'til the curtain scrawls

all is rubber balls

piffle pickle prosody

utter otter odyssey


scratch the gibbon mandible

pissing in a canticle


spinning-inner galaxy

sing a throbbing fallacy


nibble broken biscuit so

scribble cricket overflow


ring-a-ring-a-rosemary

kill the thyme of poetry


bladder adder alibi

flaccid acid alkali


sunder neath the reverie

suck the speckled lemon tree

cobweb watchers

cobweb watchers  (  srehctaw bewboc  )






cobweb watchers

watching the cobwebs


wraiths of the gateposts

ghosts on the ceiling


clouds for the cloudless

bespoke & woven


hang in the attic

facing a maze


spying a spider

feast on a greenfly


fruits of arachne

dance in the drafting


cobweb watchers

watching the cobwebs


tangle & strangle

- who watches us

( ? )

fuck knows

pen then pen  (  nep neht nep  )







pen then pen

pepper crusted pencil necks


cut throat cuttlefish

slo-mo interlude


glue gun dog

sunken onion scatterings


bigwig little owl

mud brown trouser press


bright white light

lemon scented lententide


long, black cul-de-sac

catnap caravan


gleam green stream

seven sister planetoids


android adenoids

alabaster anorak
