in a month of sun daze


in a month of sun daze  (  ezad nus fo htnom a ni  )


in a month of sun daze

paper planes & runways

rivers spin the oceans

poetry in potions

puzzles for the monkeys

overgrowth in undies

see the evening chorus

fly upon a walrus

fishes in the thickets

sticklebacks & wickets

eggs within the scrambles

tangles in the brambles

libraries in lockets

feathers in y’ pockets

sandwiches & picnics

double duck & dipsticks

peas in lemon cheeses

breezes in the sneezes

pebbles in y’ gum shoes

as the blither unscrews

scrumping fruity faces

ratatouille races

laser brains & gun rays

in a month of sun daze

– phew



























milkman floating


milkman floating  ( gnitaolf namklim  )



milkman floating over clover

shrouded in a clouded nova


up above the droving shepherds

washing socks & spotting leopards


screes the trees within the forest

blooming through & sniffs a florist


wakes the sleeping undertaker

leaves the dreaming basket maker


weaving in a hall of mirrors

as the postman’s posting pillars


& the feathered phantoms scarper

morning is a pencil sharpener


dawning belenus is ringing

whales within the dales are singing


cattle prod the snoring pastures

all is yawning quarter masters


see the village flap ‘n’ fluster

chickens pluck a feather duster


milkman floating over clover

breathes the beans & greens the grocer








































pencil shavings


pencil shavings ( sgnivahs licnep )


pencil shavings
triple deckers
pigeon feathers


racing rivers
facing mirrors
tasting metals
lick the railings


dancing daggers
apple crumbles
cymbals, dingles
caves & paintings


pirate parrots
patches, grasses
giants – gasses
paper tracings


greening grocers
droving shepherds
odd forsaking


yawning mornings
weeping onions
peppered pickles
pencil shavings

wednesday the tenth

rain came again

roosters were mute

grey ate the daze

green stayed in bed

sipping black tea

no birdsong

– as only crows flew

circles above

pigeons in holes

ducks waddled on

beige played a quiz

television sucked

lemons like a leech

blue afternoons

pissed into night



sky fives


sky fives  (  sevif yks  )


over horizons

split like a flatfish

scatters of mackerel

oceans above us

redder than herrings


warning the morning

tremble's a shepherd

horus's yawning

elder & younger

rumbles of thunder


thor in his attic

crackles of static

smashing & passing

cracks in the walrus

circles of buzzards


zeus on his broomstick

swoops with laputa

then in the welkin

belenus sinking

phosphorus winking


hecates sneezes

cheese & breezes

sniff it & spin it

this is the limit

up in the yonder



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
