A running tap in a cluttered room,
the water through dust-light.
Someone stares from a close distance,
unmoving. The sound fills the space.
A body lies outside, on the paving,
curled sideways, fully clothed.
One fist open, the other
hidden. Dawn breaks slow above.
Two bright young things, in hats,
scarves and gloves, rush breathless

Birds in their time
Snatched by roaring winds
To dream of whatever is there

Sun, wind and water
Of growth precise in given space.
A plant does not begrudge our p...

Gunpowder walk around, a spark was sobbing
Underneath secrets hopping alongside humans
Inbetween trees weeping in regret
Wet willy, slippering down the slope. Pointing at
Your directionless forehead. Hop aboard the bumpy ride.
Wear a helmet. Your tongue is like a whip... but why!
Tip of the tonge. Sharp or soft
A host of feminist vegans
Lie in a pool of his o...
