with national pride
venturing into a vast empty region
sub zero kingdom of frozen sea
to valiantly stubbornly plant the first flag
to be sacrificed to the histories of great losses
forever remembered aftermaths of failure
a chilling memory never disappearing
over blank horizons.
Howling snow storms

One hums to himself
reading each share
from the shuffled
white dotted black slabs
face down among beer slops.

Oaring the boat along gently.
Sat in the stern
She tucks into a poetry book.
Off to my left,the huge iconic chalky face
with green hair,overlooks our insignificent presence.
Below their roof of these waters
swim many varieties of marine life
with many varieties of names
that many varieties of humans
have given them
and I am more than gratefu...

Oh! the explosive nineteen sixties!
those lovely Rizla faggies enhanced with pot
the demise of velvet collared Teddy boys
and how muchly acid hit the spot
when so many kaftan'd flocked to Frisco
or chilled out in Marakesh
maybe hitched a ride to Woodstock
when flowers in their hair were fresh.
Many Legends of those swinging scenes

Stealthily slinking feline bird killer
Miaowing milk lapping hissing dog hating mouser
Furniture scratching night time prowler

Risen giants in verdurous clothing
Sky reaching elevations occasionally wearing cloudy hats
Shale and boulder patched uplands

Barnacle encrusted misguided spouting submariners
Dying drying out Moby mountains of blubber
Liquorice lips in downturned postion.

Elongated pathways of barged waters
Duck and Swan'd liquid roads intermittently locked
Excavated earth tons fluidly replaced

so harsh,so wild, doth the upper tempests blow
light,to thine eyes,falls dim
sunlight dismissed,dark full insists
in this tenebrous sea,all shadows here do swim.
Thunders terrible,rolling voice,lightnings fearsome flash!
clouds,rain swollen,unclasp their hold
though far below,is cursed this dire show
unrelenting ne'er less,high furies more loud unfold.

by the unforgiving baddies
no surprise there then.

while my positivity dresses up
in white robes
and reinvents itself as God
bringing shedloads of redemption.

will melt the ice
around your heart
slowly setting it free to find its way
to a heaven I am making for our eventual togetherness
until then my loves goes with you and my patience will never rest
my patience knows no bounds,my patience never loses,the needs of my soul won't allow it to.

Sly pretentions hid themselves
in the words she gave to this,my heart
she thought captured
that it would believe
they were messengers of love.
Her intentions,glazed with skilful deception
and perceptions,that I had become her fool
deemed to be poorly schooled
in the art of defence against manipulation
How deviously,she had sighted my inner lonelinesses

With the dust
of the days far flung brilliance
still in my eyes
I am at one

ripening to backdrop
heavens glittering parades
those crystalline orchards
among whose branchings
has grown a glimmer
one that has always
it is a beacon of hope
it is a guiding light...

Ninety six souls can rest
No more lies the whip comes down

Age prevails small wrongs uprooted
New tree's of wisdom begin bearing fruit
Consumptions of sweeter clarifications digested

Empty hands accurately striking weapons

Bully cock of the walk
Ignorant thuggish dominator of his fearing neighbourhood
Dead head walking going nowhere.

In my sleep
I see myself
crouching at the window
of some kind of library
a smoking rifle in my hands
people are running everywhere
somebody down there
in the back seat of a limo
appears to be dead
what looks like Mafia members and teamsters
are applauding me
suddenly John Kennedys ghost appears
laughing and whispering in my ear

Stalking those who are thought to trample on the worthinesse's of poetry
assumed to be joy riding its words and meanings over a cliff
there is a toothless dark beast
in his shadowed lair of pomposity and self righteousness,squirming.
Dressed up in fascist hatred
and ignorantly musing there,alone
will not let anyone less than master race perfect,be.

His crying out
only adds more ugliness to the scene
and becomes a self made requiem
With chaos in his eyes
and toy heroism gone
he is discovering how pathetic it was
to think false bravado alone
There was never going to be
a medal for all the savagery
dealt out by you to the innocents.
This is your inevitable prize

And did those feet in stolen trainers run amok

and were the communities near unbuilt there
by manic scallies lacking social skills.

A cardboard boxes and binbags 'monster'
gathering cobwebs above
mountainous obsessing possessions
too many items I love
Dusty railed regiment of shirts
not one anymore considered a beaut
a stringless guitar,a flute without toot
powder puff smelling handbags
for a hand or shoulder they yearn
old Dansette record player
on which the hits no more will turn
