same time next year?


same time next year?  (  l i s t – p o e m  )


gloves for foxes


beetroot soup

borscht force

seven letters

cat naps

vultures swoop

crow nose

feral fennel

lute newt

chicken coup


crystal scrying

sneeze fit



dust & custard

skin flaps



cornish cornets



green grass

cricket pitches

moon noon

pheasant poop

peach breeze

wake in whispers

may then

swan a loop







spinning mids


spinning mids  (  m i d – n o v e m b e r t i d e  f a r e  )

the middle moths in squibbing squids

of riddled dots & chipping fish

as lepers leap the speckled trout

& weasels toss the whipping ships

the puddles traipse in dripping trips

of fuddled snakes & hissing fits

as spinsters spank the roundabout

& lizards lick the flipping lids

the nozzles nose in sniffing whiffs

of mottled rose & kicking pricks

as werewolves scare the thereabouts

& even weaves the knitting scripts

the sprinkles spry in singing skips

of wrinkled sighs & stinging quips

as dowsers doubt the sauerkraut

& trousers rouse the slipping grips

the noodles ooze in skidding skids

of poodle spew & swishing swish

as hurdles churn the turnabout

& fiddlerts frig the giving figs

the jumbles jam in shitting bricks

of mumbled span & sticking ribs

as winter warms the summerhouse

& autumn spawns the spinning mids
