things to do on saturday

things to do on saturday  (  yadrutas no od ot sgniht  )



burble with a burst of words

circle as a bird of prey

sit upon a tuffet's tuft

eating easter, curds & whey


plod the leas of glasses gleam

tingles in the d.n.a

rub y' chin with buttercups

pucker up as branches sway


paint the sky in shades of beige

everything's a passageway

lightning strikes a gilded cage

irk the scourge of faraday


swoon beneath a silver moon

beaming like a laser ray

potter of an afternoon

snooze the latest matinee


mumble in a bubble's bath

water falls & runaway

marbleous, this carpentry

stumbles in the underlay


sip a sup of mourning tea

once upon a dossier

steaming mugs & storming cups

in a spin as potter's clay


squiggle on with bits of list

paper planes & throwaway

roam the gloam & seek the sea

hit the ships & stowaway


weasels weave as badgers dance

in this bastard cabaret

sunken suns & sniffing glue

things to do on saturday

...

























 

gone but not the other

gone but not the other  (  rehto eht ton tub enog  )





she is the bright & blinds at night

a warring wind - a feast for worms

as poets doze & vampires bite

a dance within a can of squirms


she is the scree upon the hills

a mutant moon, a spew of shrews

or leprosy in espadrilles

a dog in clogs, a cat in shoes


she is the bat of bastard black

a parliament of wailing bones

beyond the snarls & gnarls of cracks

of storming cups or paving stones


an autumn leaf as weasels weave

a tapestry beyond the gong

a michaelmas on whitsun eve

a scatter graph - but still the song

spitting dusk

~

spitting dusk  (  ksud gnittips  )




the thicket bristles in the wood

as ghosts are gloaming in the leas

a muffle in the scheme of things

as breezes hum & ruffle trees


the grasses whisper in chinese

& chatter through the afternoon

until the fly that hovers spies

a sunken sun, a rising moon


& sitting in a sodden ditch

within the still - a poet harks

the tooting sounds, a screeching copse

& hoots abound - the owls are larks


so scribble i with squinting eyes

i'm spitting dusk in dimming light

i'm scrawling on as supper calls

i wave the day & kiss the night
