it used to be fine between us
sexual habits taken as read
a cup of hot cocoa after telly
then off up the stairs to bed
she never really bothered me
if I was tired, she'd go to sleep
me dropping off with frank relief
no need to count any sheep
Black Friday that started her off
sex manuals on-line, going cheap
eyes glowing, her juices flowed,
her demands le...

The Poor Little Dove
To watch the wind play with the wave,
I sat on a bench by the museum garden pond.
Then a small pigeon came flying,
Landing to her feet, tiny and cute,
And stared up at me, a bit intensely,
Only blinking her eyes, with no other move.
She looked like a baby as a camera model,
Getting me to recall my infanthood picture.
I took s...

Mom and dad
Me if you adore
Kiss me not
Is no more! ///
As part of the sensitization work on physical distancing I heard a kid on ETV saying so.

Missing life. Empty streets. Cold hearts.
Covering your face what you once criticised on stranger's faces.
Missing love. Empty hearts. Cold air.
Covering the flowers in your heart, the strings of my guitar.
Missing music. Empty stages. Cold rooms.
Covered ears, listening to scary news, not to music anymore.
Missing passion. Empty beds. Cold skin.
Covering all lu...

They all turn into madness.
Fear, the poison, injected too often.
A vaccination to prevent you from optimism,
from being an individual,
from the hope you kept deep inside.
You are infected with gloomy thoughts and panic feelings,
a fever of silence.
Only your own mind can set you free,
let you heal and open your eyes for beauty, kindness
and the hidden truth.

I saw Mrs CV yesterday in the supermarket
she wasn’t at all what I thought she would be
middle-aged with a smiley, rounded face
nothing evil about her at all
There were too many people
at the check-outs
I ran out of there for safety reasons
passing her frolicking kids
on the newspaper stand
‘Hey!’ shouted Mr CV
loitering on one of the doors
‘come and pick...

my mind’s hazy.
Penned in like chicken
that never lays...
and a merging of powers.
When did we surrender control of the supply chain?
I hear vegans got beef
but you can’t get the show on an empty road.
Do we even know where our food is grown?
Butcher, cheesemonger, greengrocer, and farmer...
were stripped from our com...

Who will close the last door?
A virus brings you in prison.
But fear is the real disease,
Panic and Hysteria
Cause all the symptoms.
It gives the powerful more power
And the lonely ones
Isolation is not healthy,
Fears just make us sick.
Go out and live,
Don't read the news
And you will stay healthy.
