satsuma star


satsuma star  (  rats amustas  )

satsuma star

rise like the shining

still sunken sun

citric & sparkles

swoop in the mute

yawns of the morning

ghost of a sky

phantom of plasma

over the leas

carotene phoenix

i with my eyes

stand on the rec's edge

five twenty five

spins on a sixpence

swan in a squint

sweet ginger ninja




radishes & anoraks


radishes & anoraks  (  skarona & sehsidar  )

radishes & anoraks

salad swings a babbleaxe

ships upon a lunar sea

sinking on in thinking caps

cabbage trees & candle wax

kangaroo the parallax

otters in a glossary

prosody in tractor tracks

double ducks & rubber quacks

shoo the shrew of dancing taps

hymn the sing of aviaries

maidens of the pavement's cracks

galaxies & scattered maps

walruses as walls collapse

underling the oversee

poetry with cataracts



the chattering


the chattering  (  gnirettahc eht  )

quivers spin within the cosh

in the swish - the bubbles splosh

piss upon the whirl awash

bats & cars - a splattering

breezes cheese & thunder drums

bees-a-swan a twizzled tongue

beetles pushing squalls of dung

all is balls, a scattering

suns hiccup in burps of bright

jungles jig within the knight

mumbles hum & jumbles sprite

scraps of sprat - the chattering

ambles of an afternoon

salad spews beneath the moon

sand is sunk as cackles croon

puffing much - & that's the thing



within the fields


within the fields  ( sdleif eht nihtiw )

within the fields the weasels sing

of phantoms in the mists of spring

the grasses gleam as teasel glow

& little orbs are snorkelling

a sort of sea upon the vale

as snails awake & chase the tail

of winter's ghost & rivers flow

& puffs of seeds in clusters scale

the mutant blue & blooming sky

to flutter like a butterfly

beneath an oak as gardens grow

we sit & hark, the dog & i

the breathless hum of bumblebees

the mumbles on a jumbled breeze

then wander home but slowly so

within the fields, upon the leas


bright white sheet shite


blank white sheet shite  ( a seasonal scribble )

the first of the month

a crackle of popcorn

a blossom of cotton

& rabbits are wed

the chalk of the town

a clatter of chatter

as seagulls are shitting

on chefs in their nests

of dusted meringue

& cheese à la cottage

as swans sing of linen

& doves string along

with men in their coats

& albino phantoms

as mistletoe tingles

& sheep fly the flag

a knight in a van

a tower of flour

a shuffle of knuckles

the milk of the eye

& elephants lie

as sliced is the rice bread

i scribble this piffle

alone in the snow



gabbling nuts


gabbling nuts  ( my other poem is a manuka honey badger )

mist upon the fog

sodden is the trodden path

as the badgers sing

songs within the bonce

ponce upon a scorpion

tales within the sting

as the woodland brown

weasels scheme & leaves piss down

kiss a signets ring

loop the whooper's hoop

swans upon a monkey isle

gibbons in the swing

droving over stiles

stubble grows as beards appear

so the limpets cling

pipers, pies & piles

whales & bales in barns of yarns

bailing twine as string

fuddles in the dales

in the midst of second spring

winter in the wings

let the games begin

gabbling nuts & dust - til may

babble, that's the thing


alphabet antennae


alphabet antennae  (  a  p o e t r y  )

alphabet antennae

blasting badger babylon

christmas crystal crows

diabetic dogs

even easter's eggheads

farting farthing funerals

galloping goshawks

horus's horsefly

iodine is inkling

j'accuse jim's jacuzzi jam

kipper kilowatts

lemon leper lords

musical, my mudflaps

nibiru's new noodle nest

otter obelisks

pyrotechnic plums

quoting quagga quince queens

ruffle rubber river run

seven silver swans

tonsil tonguing toads

unicorn urinals

vintage viking valium

weasels waxing wings

xanadu's xenon

yodel yeti yeoman

zither zephyr zulu zeus

( zzzzzzz )
