Nicola Beckett on Stay with me (2 hours ago)
Nicola Beckett on Out of reach (3 hours ago)
Nigel was right of course
straight out of the other side
walking across the zebra lane
on that promenade
the treachery of Facebook.
The Green Man is sleeping until winter
but spring rain will awaken him next year,
haunted by the repetition
it was a day like this
when she was a tree
and he wore her like a cloak
When she was smoke
clinging to a death bed,
no wasted anger arra...

Wake up to the glory of a legendary Nigel we do not know
Nigel was gone when we rioted that night time
Nigel was gone when we ran out of chicken pie
It was the day they told us to learn again in insanity
Nigel was first of course
Taking to unplug with Nigel
We are taunted or haunted by memories of the future
The inkwell was full of pulsating excitement
hitting the right notes in music a...

I’m dreaming I’m Bohemian
Last time we met, gyroscopic diner punches back, back, back
punching mp3s isn't the same as punching records
This lockdown is never ending - send me more Vodka
The wrong place, at the wrong time, Icarus falls into the English Channel,
to be washed up on the white cliffs, and the Queen is left immortal,
as the freedom monarch...

Overtaken by cyclists heading into sunrise in your dreams
Broke grains on Monday, counting red angels
Drunk on darkness smiling on the shadows
A phone call only a shadow away from your fingertips
We are the survivors stunned, in Stockport
Digging deeper, reflective
Talking to the walls
Church bells toll for every day without a death
We are the poets leaving our words open...

Dreading the task of a thousand spots
Lost worlds now more than just regrets or soiled paths not taken
Walking through life with coke, crack, and endless possibilities.
In the amber of panic a book of hauntology is born
The biggest April fools prank ever
Miniature portraits of a poetic diaspora under curfew still deliver haunting lines
Gaining a better view at the edge of the world

Righteous and correct, the clown wilts
Rumour has it I saw someone in costume
From a magazine advertising hard goods.
It’s left my heads in bolts and screwed up.
Unlock my imagination.
No you can’t have a pancake: it’s Saturday!
Run your fingers through the rubble
At the altar of vengeance
Rumour has it, God is forgotten and pancakes need Nutella....

There’s a rumour going round that street
Pushing past their little destinies
Caught short Shakespear relieved himself against the corn sheaves
The fox startled bit the leg of the harvest jigger
The painting has little time to dry, as poets' pens begin.
To take down a street of music, blended to new worlds of rhyme.
Underneath the moon
The rabbit did not sto...

In the new dawn of dreams
Adolf sits on his final throne of dirt dug deep,
Wondering if the English Bard would have loved him so,
Don’t go down that street!
We are wild-walking beings with a side of dark heart.
Sheep have beautiful contours and very furry
Hurry up Steinbeck, you’re rambling
Sitting on tailored lawns through polished glass
Not as cool in old b...
