take me to your bedroom
set my soul on fire
remove my thong with your teeth
unwrap me like a gift
that sexy gleam in your eyes
says all I need to know
long enough we’ve been in lust
let’s pussyfoot no more
so kiss me now long and deep
let me be your temptress
I’ll lick your flesh into life
our desire will overflow

We were born to run,
To roll down the windows of our life and let the wind blow back our hair.
I might have believed that once,
Until grey towns heaped up on the horizon,
And the distance between me and isolation grew shorter.
"I can't wait!" I might have said,
But now the shape that I had once imagined has been dented by the blows of whatever happened to happen,

(Time for a dirty one!)
I woke excited this morning.
You know, excited down there;
I’d dreamt of us being together,
Aroused by the scent of your hair.
We walked hand-in-hand so slowly
Soaked to the bone by the rain
Its rivulets streamed down your forehead
We laughed and were twenty again.
The street turned into a bedroom

In a long ago time when the world was fine and the sun shone every day.
Where the grass grew green and the air blew clean there was always time to play.
Then falls from trees and fresh scraped knees where just one part of life.
As meal times passed we survived the fast untouched by any strife.
When football games were played in frames until dusk wrap it's cloak.

Trapped inside my brain
Ten thousand fledglings wait
Each sparkling with hope
Within this hopeless state.
In their unfettered world
They jostle to be free,
Yet one by one the flame is gone –
They shrink and die in me.
Oh! Womb of future past
Where birth pains sear,
In darkest night

Heightened emotion, lowered devotion
The body invaded, the senses pervaded
By tensions and fears, confusion and tears
Red mist is falling, the "Russians are calling"
To occupy state, let's hope they're not late
Life's blood ebbs away, day by day
Captured at source, as a matter of course
Female frustration, male isolation
Monthly mutation across every nation...

They cannot stop

The saddest memory is there to find

And I was a lad who began the biggest record collection in th...

I never really knew my mother’s father.
All I remember: tuft of nostril hair,
spied from sitting on his knee; and a hoard
of half-hidden threepenny pieces
slipped into a sandpit outside the lido.
In pictures he looks a kind, fair man.
Worked for his only firm from 16 to 61.
Received a wedding cruet set in 1922,

When the last paragraph of the story of my life
Has been reached
When the last full stop is written
Once the book is closed
The lights will be turned off
And that will be the end of the show
Those poems I wrote
Over the years
Hopefully will stand the test of time
Be read by young and old eyes

Where is that nursery window?
Cunliffe, Martha and Mary
threw Anne's writing-desk onto the lawn
after spitting in her workbag.
Is the table in the corner
the one that Anne tied her charges to
much to the chagrin of her employer?
Silence hovers in the room.
In the orchard and kitchen garden
I can sense the bones of moles and magpies
trapped and tortured by Master Cunliffe,

And he uppercuts back -
Sometimes when they start

So that I can tune in

To share the same space,
To eat and sleep together.
Tonight there is a truce:

People in glass houses should not throw stones!
But I find myself thrown,
Thrown like lamb to lion
But that’s how it is,
That’s how it always is when
Suffering the purgatory of born lowest,
Lowest of low.
You start your day with all manners
Of optimism; keen, eager, ready to take
On the all - selfish gods bestow

This poem is not technically speaking my next poem.
However, it would have been-
if you had seen me writing my last poem,
you see my next poem will be the one I write after this one-
if you sort of know what I mean?
But it won't be my next poem when I'm actually composing it,
it will then be my current poem,
of course this poem would then become my last poem.

She just wants to spend the night
examining my foreskin,

trying to find the seam
where God sewed me up.
Somewhere beyond this day,
there are lovers next to white beaches,

We won the war in 1944
Me and Jubb sang that coming back from school
then bought our rocks at The Bonbon shop:
Fruit Pastilles, Gobstoppers, Pineapple Chunks.
We never pinched from the Bonbon shop
because Mr Bonbon would let you off
if you didn’t have enough dough.
One morning we heard him say to a bloke
It makes you wonder who won the war

They think they know her as she bends over,
her cheek stroking the spruce of pine,
the tufts of her hair, static – dreams wafted in the near space
They cross their legs and lean into each other –
eyes forward, slight with whispers, presumptions -
they know the program, and have bought the ticket;
they wrote the music, and metered the love.

The chisk of shale beneath wet boots

Squealing gulls take the baton up

I turn as if pursued

find none there.
This is a reckless place

the murky recesses of affordability
barely buildings, bedrooms with sinks
chair pushed up against the door
flakes of lives flung everywhere
A curtain, a quilt - who can really say?

Still lives go on; the rudimentary,
ramshackle, clutching at homeliness

Soft pink petals, dew-dropped,

a single drop
caressing the lip.
