They seem proud to identify with a New Empire,
after years of stigmatization, demonization, marginalization
discrimination, RACISM, RACISM, RACISM.
Then I'm not proud that I'm not like that.
But you should be very proud of yourself if you are
If you are more polar than the poles;...

You have a phone meeting at noon,
address the issue head-on and soon.
Lobbyists are clawing at the doors.
I set up a press conference at four.
Jerry wrote you a speech
he typed it with his feet.
Suppose, he would have used his hands.
But, they were amputated per your demand.

there’s a saying that I've heard,
something about ‘the silence of the sea.’
but I can’t figure out what it means.
the sea is not silent
as the waves crash onto the shore.
it rages and fumes as it batters down
the sea is as loud as thunder,
as deafening as a plane’s engine.
it is anything but silent,
its presence always known.
but maybe ‘th...

Sat down in the GP room ,hoping if I told him everything straight they’d help me soon . Pain management is the place I need to be but instead they insist another pill or three . I’m not wanting to be off on the sick line , I just want to manage my pain and finally feel fine .
Just take this one and you’ll feel brand new , it’ll take the pain away and you’ll love everything you do . Come ...

Last entry from 2020! Yikes... Stuff written since. This is from March this year. Naturally it's been rejected for publication. Clearly that's destroyed me as a writing individual. Didn't tailor it. Just thought "You want this?". And they didn't. Wish I'd posted more stuff on here. But we'll instead rock on with...

Anger and are old friends his a flame that's been burning a long time.
You see for the most part am a smiling sort of soul a happy go lucky or at least that's what I want you think
See I have care for people cared to much to say my piece care to much to what others think to go after my dreams
So I remain stuck in my nightmares and a tid bit lonely that's we my pal anger comes in.

they're cold but they don't judge
blue lights respond to everyone
even her, so small, hiding
in a wardrobe
tree lights are other lights
sparkling joyously, festively
it was difficult watching my own play
after her, so small, smoke filled,
never getting to play with whatever
she got under those other lights

They rhymed them right
They rhymed them wrong
They rhymed in poetry and song
And when they saw things were not fair
They’d rhyme and oft times even swear
They rhymed them left
They rhymed them right
They rhymed them up
They rhymed them down
They rhymed by day
They rhymed by night
They rhymed the flat cap and the crown
Yes, rhymed of princes
Rhymed of kings
And rhymed of more impo...

I worried my way through life
until I learned to dance
in the skies.
Come, take my hand,
show me a little smile,
let's fly to the clouds
and glide across the heavens.
Oh how beautiful
is the blue-green earth
and the blue-blue sky
when we join the angelic choir and sing praises from afar.
Don't be too earth bound
it's crazy down here,

Her words mostly gave me comfort and cure,
And often gave me pain that I couldn't endure.
Her words mostly tasted like the first sip of wine,
And often sent the coldest chill down the spine.
Her words mostly provided feelings to my pen,
And often haunted me until I reached my den.
Her words mostly left the colours of the butterflies,
And often burnt like th...

I saw an archbishop at Waterloo:
Looking for a sandwich
And spoiling for some action
With his usual cassock crew.
I suppose that this is what they do.
I once saw Lord Longford
Swapping yarns with a Tory,
But that, as they say,
Is another story.

As excited as the winds during a hurricane, Happy like the sun, no one can steal my joy, Equanimity came natural to me, The calm before the storm, I'm either hyper dancing and laughing or I'm somewhere reading a book, Not to gasconade but I love my life so much, Mom and Dad with the clutch lessons, Just cause I accomplished so much don't mean start resting, That feeling of good thoughts on a bad d...

I'm sure they took our photos off the fridge.
I'm sure the framed pictures of us that scattered her walls are gone.
I'm sure I left some things lying around here and there.
I'm sure my presence,
and every existence of who I was,
is erased from their homes.
I'm sure they talk about us.
The words and rumors never leave their mouths.
But I wonder if they sit and reminisce.
And miss who I...

They say every day is a new beginning
The start of something new and fresh
Despite how we may be feeling, let us
therefore be optimistic.

A child was born in Blackburn early on Christmas day,
She became a passive smoker as in her cot she lay.
Her lungs the size of plums filled up with cruel smoke,
When her mother heard her coughing it really made her choke.
Smoking makes the stairs seem steeper,
As your chest runs out of breath,
It fills the air with darkness,
And leads to certain death.
Smoking in ...

The majesty of dogs impresses us –
their solitary solidarity –
above their grey horizons
there is the promise, lingering…
These days an ending is assumed
that glorifies the story of our lives:
making children, seeing things,
listening to waves wash the pebbles.
overhearing our hearts’ desires.
Yesterday the sky darkened at noon
seas spewed forth strange shapes

A tense game played out at top volume.
Weeds three feet high,
make tidy play almost impossible.
A pass back short, away from the defender.
A collective lunge,
the ball skids high over our keeper.
Next thing I know I’m flat on the floor,
water flying, books, electronics,
in upended uproar.
My desperate kick to save one for the team,
caused me to cras...

There are similarities between oysters and humans,
They both lose value when the belongings they owned are taken away.

The DREAM never keeps your word
If you play with it,
A tree produces a thousand seeds
Numberless lives in sleep can be stirred
The tree drops the mature fruits
Upon the ground,
The wind leads them to sleep and
To stand up like the newborn babies,
If the tree had a hand keeping the fruit
In the sun and not dropped it,
The seed couldn't get a new journey.

By a new-found rage
Fuelled by a hatred
For all that he had come to understand
And this place, once called home,
Corrupted long ago
Tainted by the foulest souls
Who had long since lost their way
Too far gone to be saved
He took to the skies
And unleashed his fury
Unable to control himself
He would destroy it all
But just before he ...

we know everything we’ve done nothing
we don’t even know
who we are
we’ve seen a vision
perfect life we’re wanting
even pornography doesn’t go that far
we’re everywhere all at once
I’d just like
somewhere with you all alone
my tomorrows could come undone
they could all

I wouldn’t care

The North Yorkshire tourist town of Hicklegate blooms in the afternoon sun,
as people flock to Buncies, its famous Cafe Parlour, for tea and an expensive bun.
While I, hiding under a rhododendron bush, which had provided a nocturnal refuge, while excellent washing facilities were provided by the river Flick, spy Marie, whom I’ve befriended (or was it the other way around?).

The wishing well conceals
all the lessons of pain
begging to be learned,
just as the marvel
knows to mesmerize,
but the cadaver
hides all the while
A tableau vivant has
the erratic pseudo-
frozen as static,
in a world demanding
of supine and lupine,
in the strangest
of feedback loops
No real resolution, just

What is a poetry?
Is it a tree full of poets?
Not sure, but I know it's
Gotta be more than that
More proverbially fat
With some literary girth
Apt to give birth
To words and birds and
Herds of ideas
That run across a page
Perhaps even a stage
To make people do things
To act and be things
Make someone feel things
When one moves and sings
Based on abstract concepts

Every time I see a feather, if it's pure white.
I think it's Mum, making sure that I'm alright.
So I look down at the feather and say 'hello'
And I tell my Mum, where I am about to go.
Because I know my Mum is watching over me.
From Heaven, she can see all there is to see.
Or Mum could be a Robin, from Heaven flown.
But I think she's a feather, into my path blown.
I've seen white ...

I do think it right to let Justice prevail
And offer him chance of release upon bail
With full explanation he should avoid jail
So for what he did to that tree
I'd saw him off at the knee.

A stem clutched in a chubby fist:
at mercy and ready to teach.
Atop is a sweet, sun-fed kiss, perfumed
and extending to reach:
the son inspects the specimen
and the father beams, knowing
that science lives.

I used to look at him,
fear for him, as
my new world flashed by his
like black and white
fast-forward cine film,
leaving me wondering
how could he possibly navigate
the vivid colours of change
as man’s relentless advancements
spilled from the machine like
he wore a curious limpid expression
a resigned realisation ...

ReMember the Night
How can you go meekly into the night
When your world no longer gently goes around?
How can you go meekly into the night
When lives of who you cherish depend on you being wise?
Do you forget that in the beginning time started?
And yet this time has an end as so do you.
For if you have, forget not that all times have their moments besides one Holy one...

For the future ahead, all thr best
No decision is right nor wrong
So whatever you've decided is good
Go ahead and live your life
Make the most of what you still have
Forget about what isn't or could've been
Now it's easy to keep going on
It's been years since new leaf turned on
Past was just a glimpse in life's history
What's present should be important
