bird night


bird night  (  a  p o e m  )

a magpie, a curlew

& a ptarmigan

flew into

a bar


( it was bird night )


agnus daze


agnus daze  (  a  p o e t r y  )

buttercups fingers brisk the breeze

burbles of birds blur flew & flow

seasonal bleatings green the trees

speckles of blossom pose as snow

cotton sock phantoms flock the sky

daffodils droop as bluebells knell

ringing in tandem as the fly

watches a wasp within the dell

badgers & foxes box the hare

frogs referee as weasels cheer

sneezes of petals pox the air

scallion weep as shepherds sheer

winter is sleeping in the loft

dreaming of war as warbles ring

song in the coppice, from the croft

singing of portals, wings & rings



magnetic love


magnetic love  (  a  p o e m  )

cat clarinet of fan inlets

as leopards leck the lemonade

& rats cassette as lapwings sweat

of shepherd shims & melon maids

sip anisette on parapets

& lick the knave of mayonnaise

dog hovercraft - the hologram

slash parallax in sonic socks

or haversack as mono grams

of candle wax in comet clocks

& badgers axe the anagram

slash agar man in raven socks

kale cable car in nasal tar

& marble in the marlin's chin

as mitts sitar & tables bra

of alphabets & garden kings

piss papal stars - miss maple car

& bubble wraps of signet rings

pi platypus, the pincer's imp

& prefix in the pine nut pew

eye, tacitus - in kitchen blinks

& trifle in the rifle's glue

as abacus bee blister ink

& lettuce gins of crabs & yew



mist the bus & catch the fog


mist the bus & catch the fog  (  y o u ‘ v e  l e f t  t h e  b l o o d y  i r o n  o n  )

mizzle mettle kettle sing

mist the bus & catch the fog

spring it spurs a petalling

babbles bat the travelogue

piddle puddles pedalling

freckles frog on analogue

speckle dogs & swirling things

purring in the catalogue

tsol meop


tsol meop  (  a  p o e m  o f  m i s s i n g  t h i n g s  )

dockets in pockets, a vole in the head

warbles of wallets & balls of the thread

locks in the locket or cats up a tree

thrashings at matches & flaps in the red

tingling teasels, an inkling of hay

spindling needles & sun on the day

spun of a sputter as kingdoms of keys

sleep in the aether & pigeon of clay

bricks of a fourth wall, a scrawl in the scribes

slipping in shortfalls as roundabout slides

down as the trousers or scuttles at sea

singing in whispers of giants & tribes

bundling parcels - a garden or two

mumbling marbles in spew of a clue

mist in the mizzle on riddling screes

music in gargles, a sparkle & ewe
