May 2021 Collage Poem: Truth Not Fiction

Aches like an August sky with a lipstick smile
Tangled at sunset in crimson skies
Despicable creatures run and hide in shadows

Drowned rats find worry in their shadows
Running across drenched summits
Footsteps lined up in haiku beats

The crystal glass of the past life
A wedding present in the charity shop
I see the other me, before she turns the corner.

It wasn't me!

Sacred threa...

May 2020 Collage Poem: Somewhere Out There

He's gone

gone

gone

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

May Collage Poem - Surprised by Joy

Good food side by side,

Poems two by two,

Just walk, walk my friend to the Joy,

From the darkness, walk now to your summer.

 

Hera disbelieving Zeus kicks

Him between the legs. He smiles

Surprised by joy

 

And my lover said to me

Walk to the door of joy

And well come me

 

Revisiting revenge underneath pie trucks

Like a rampant ground hog day

Funny and r...

Black and Blue

Black and blue 

A bruise's hue 

And the colors of many others 

Look up at the sky 

On a stormy day 

As the clouds cry 

Blue and gray 

Your silhouette black  

Against the flash of the Lightning above 

It's courage you lack 

And your hopes fly away with the dove 

It's not the lion, I'm afraid, that carries the pride 

But the Lightning that paralyzed you as it bide...

May 2017 Collage poem

 

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...

the rain so light is
so light it hardly noticed be
tickles the ransom
   and the bluebell
to fill this world of wood
   budding leaf pale green
with all the powers of the earth

no birds sing today
clustering within themself
taking shelter where they may

and in this silence footsteps
   against this thickening
   wall of summer
coming drown from the hills
    in the drying drainin...

We Miss You

Dear Jimbo,

On this day you left.

The Earth could no longer handle your grace, for this world can be an ugly place.

We couldn't handle your departure by ourselves. You showed us that we still have each other and that family is more than we were allowing it to be. Some of us will recoil and shrink. We look at them and we think about growth, our own extra terrestrial face as universal...

The riot of spring

   Into the riot of the spring

sirens are calling my soul

what the hell is wrong with me?

I feel like I'm a thousand years old

 

But I've just been a boy

who started a million fires

went down on his knees and then prayed

to catch another glimpse of your face

 

That day you were wearing a skirt

the day you made my knees shake

all that distant time
