behind the blinds

behind the blinds  (  sdnilb eht dniheb  )






behind the blinds, the blinds of blue

a shade the shade of shadeless shite

a scribble scrawls a line or two


a portal calls, a door of snorts

the hinges creak & snort in squeaks

a burst of birds, the splurge of thoughts


the chattering is back again

a caber toss of jollop's jape

a smattering of acid rain


beneath the sun, a couplet druns

the trah-luh-lars of handlebars

the fiddle dum of thumbs & crumbs


within a mist - a slip of tea

a storm the scent of peppermint

the stumble stuff of bumble me


as dawn's a yawn & all is pants

the parallax of paper plain

a pantomime, a dive, a dance


a pen, a pad, a wonky desk

a donkey on a thistled lea

the lottery of poemesque


so spiral then, the bends & winds

a broken biscuit symphony

the sound of down - behind the blinds
