crunching ( gnihcnurc )


crunching in a wood

scrunching on this crackered land’s

kitchen sinking sand


trudging with aplomb

like the fading autumn sprite

as the footpath twigs


so the thicket thins

saturn spins – a goblin sings

this is easter’s ghost


& the carpet glows

marbles, me & barking trees

branches leaf a trace


numbered blow the bones

wafer thin biscuits fading

embers of a then


sound is bouncing round

sun above but yonder ground

eggshells & cornflakes

the keys


the keys ( syek eht )

tingles in the land of tangles

jingles in a pocket’s jangle

cracking on between the scrambles

plodding on the road

dithers, dawdles, scrawls & gasping

blithers as the brass is rasping

rivers running, fingers clasping

digits in a code

dazes changing, hazes bunching

noses glowing, pinches punching

hymns & spinning, numbers crunching

songs upon a breeze

pushing buttons, switching pitches

summer’s wizards, winter’s witches

motion, oceans, hills & ditches

shifting with the keys

shuffles of a muffed morning

as the sunken sun is yawning

when the staggered stead is fawning

then it’s enter in

floating in the ghost of gloaming

fading, waving, flapping, foaming

beetles heaving, dung’s the roaming

home & let’s begin

daisy chainy gaps


daisy chainy gaps ( spag yniahc ysiad )

nausea crawls a toad
slowly smoky ghost
drums upon the hoof
maybe rainy taps

antlers in the fog
eighty parsnips parp
woten hangs again
phasy brainy flaps

phosphorus the frog
flighty nightie night
knickers in the mist
lacy lady baps

sirens spinning hymns
holy oaky hood
laughter in the wood
hazy gravy naps

as minerva purrs
birdy wordy swirls
spiral like an eye
daisy chainy gaps

flower shower shine
hairy fairie ring
oscillate away
– crazy wavy caps


fission vision


fission vision ( noisiv noissif )

the ants within my pants

only prance & dance at funerals

      masks are the mark

      of the muzzled in the dark

cheese is a god

& chocolate is a goddess

      odd socks rule

      school is guff ‘n’ gruel

sixty six sugars

in my tea or cappuccino

      i’ve yet to reinvent

      the hamster wheel or trouser press

hope is leverets larking

on a feathered daze in april

      & my last home planet

      had two thousand moons – too

( we’ve got so much in common )
