daffodils & badger bilge

daffodils & badger bilge  (  a  p o e t r y  )




marble cakes & marmalade

parlour maids & poles

otters in me dockets

pockets in the holes


natterjacks & haversacks

saddle wax & sprats

mortar in me daughter

water in the rats


pantomimes & phantom chimes

amber eyes & lips

battles in me barrels

apples in the pips


telephones & metronomes

megaphones & knees

blisters in me sister

whispers in the trees


analogue & cattle prods

catalogues & glue

scuffles in me ruffles

shuffles in the shrew


daffodils & badger bilge

stagger hills & roads

easter in me vestry

eggy as she flows
