for whom the bell ends …  (  … sdne lleb eht mohw rof  )




blooming blue lunatics

seeking silver light


lullabies, succubi

as the buggers bite


myrmidons murmuring

mercury & hark


magic beans, majesty

rabid badgers bark


speckle then, pecking hens

rubber chicken neck


flutter cups, frozen beams

floating - flippin' 'eck


sea shanties, cheese pantries

sweet selene & me


crater-faced clatterings

- campanology


...

authors note  ( eton srohtua )




authors note of holes in plots

poets pause & piss in pots


apples rot & doctors sneeze

phantoms fog the misted leas


croaking frogs are boxing hares

spinsters spin in swivel chairs


faster as the river brims

minstrels mince the meat of hymns


in the turning twists of dawn

teasels prick as weasels yawn


cockerels crow & starlings shine

starting with a parting line


bishops bash the rusted nails

painters brush the fox's tails


authors note of holes in plots

quill the gaps & jot the dots

s t o c k  (  k c o t s  )





pens within a pencil case

worms within a squirming tin


birds within a feathered head

onions under lemon skin


paper planes & pickled brains

peppermint & rusted chains


ring a rubber chicken neck

triple check & let's begin

catching  (  gnihctac  )





rain again upon the lane

in the garden - too


stars from yonder hologram

sneezing fits, the flu


drifts within a hammock's nap

cats 'n' dogs - the clap


silverfish in kitchen sinks

fifty winks - & you

the madness of clouds

~

the madness of clouds   (  sduolc fo ssendam eht  )






mackerel smoke rings

cotton wool ball sacks


balzac & anne boelyn

dance the lambada


snowing over clover

garden gnome gnosis


ishtar gargles

stratospheric ketchup


frogs from the welkin

bright white satellites


shepherd red eyes cry

ziggurat splashback


cumulus ninjas

gloam, ghost avenues


half a yard of parsnips

spaghetti feedback hoops
