Café conflict, Halloween Haikus
From Dracula’s steps
I am on the 4th bench on the right
I am talking to you, to the love
And to the new face
And to my own death
A bat out of hell flew over
The 100 steps.
A fairy tale, but fairy tales
Coldness begins to bite by
The moon is desserted
White horse gallops into infinit...

Magpie flaps to the tune of Nature’s injustice
The poet strives for another success another year
Sunday wakens, bedraggled and woebegone
Coronation Street anthem drawls its falsehoods
Upbeat parental ending yields to great grimness
Wild West Yorkshire runs with bullet blood
Words find new hope in an army of perplexing forms
Goddess pours like erotic iron on the breathless...

But everyone thinks I’m lying
Slender Man, Enderman, carrying things,...

People die for what they say - a sacrifice

Promises unfulfilled in darkrooms
my pen massages,
carefully and lovingly
the waiting page.
She is everywoman: sacrifice, laughter, death.
U kip I kip we all kip

the painting of the dog, howling
she is all-giving, all-taking, all-lov...

We die! We die!
scream the old men
of the trees,
as their grip slips
from skeletal fingers
holding them aloft.
They fall to earth
in a blaze of golden glory,
coming to rest
at the feet of
great oaks, sycamores,
birch and elms.
Rustling in their cardigans
of orange and amber
like dry skin
