{Diary Of The Southern Queen Entry #6} {His Rhythm} 

 

 

 

His rhythm of

his songs played

like the sickest

twisted dead of a

deafening whistling 

whisper's through

the cold northern

lights that only

the animals could

hear that kept

them howling

by the bay from the

amusement of his

meaningless song

that continues to

play his sickened

twist...

I am I without a name!

I am I

Without a name

I am I still

Without a name

 

You may wish to call me in the dark of night

You may wish to reach out,

When I am out of sight,

You may wish to write me a poem,

A song or a sonnet

What name shall you then

Write upon it,

 

So precious name,

You are not in vain,

Addressing this house, this body, this frame,

Though it too will change...

Mermaid Song

entry picture

O, mermaid of the moonlight,
You sang so sweetly in the
Midst of the lake. I recall
The music of your voice,
The freedom of your chords.
Vision of delight, you sat
Silhouetted against the moon,
Your hair waving in the spray,
Your breasts dancing with

The motion of your arms
As you played the sea lute.
Such a fragrant night you
Must have felt the urge to
Rise up from the depths
Of the...

my cousin simone

entry picture

Now let me tell you a little rhyme,

About one of the greatest cousins of all time.

She’s feisty, funny and all so pretty,

Plus did i mention she’s all so witty.

She has hair so long and fair, I can’t help but stop and stare.

She set up her own little business,

Which was all about food forgiveness,

Promoting her juice plus,

Which she goes to meetings to discuss.

How these...

Puzzles To Speak After You

Disappearing, out of view
always so smooth
always too soon
you make disappearing cool

When you slipped away
left puzzles to speak after you
let them say whatever’s needed
an exit so expertly executed

I wasn’t always a fan of you
such strange clothes
too out of time
so far removed from me
I didn’t know what you could say
that could ring true for me
I never thought there could be a...

WANDSWORTH WUFFIAN

Five years and nine months

Can you tell what it is yet?

It's not long enough

 

So whilst on 'A' Wing

Bend down to pick up your soap

Whilst in the shower

 

No 'Two Little Boys'

Just 'Jake the Peg's middle leg

Summary justice

 

A didgery-doo

Try your Kangaroo court sport

It's coming to you

 

Then why no remorse?

Banged up at portrait's pleasure

L...

THE TRAGEDY OF SONG

She sings in such hushed vocal tones one second, ...
then she shatters glass in an attack of tragic beauty the next.
The truths and traumas of life seem so real and painful when her voice glides over them,
after all, isn’t this the life that you and I and her live?
We are al...

The Template of my Being

Been there

Done it

Eaten it

Drunk it

Almost drowned in it

Nearly died

 

Praised it

Cursed it

Dodged it

Traversed it

Just you name it

I’ll have tried

 

Smoked it

Snorted it

Been traumatised by it

Reduced to tears by it

Laughed and cried

 

Run it

Walked it

Chased it

Caught it

Wished I hadn’t bothered s...

Moor Music

 

The shrill piping call of the returning Curlew

Contrasting with the lonely peep- peep of Golden Plover

Plaintive note of Peewit carried on the wind from its arching flight

Wading birds reclaiming their share of the corduroy moorland

Nesting sites found on drier ground among ling and crowberry

Ascending notes of Skylark lift the spirit and raise hopes

Honk of Raven ...

FADE

 

FADE

I fade away to nothing because you're not here. I know you exist. You're my contemporary who achieved great things. My twin flame. I want to steal you from your boyfriend by winning your heart and seducing you with my poetry. I know your language and will capture you, no matter what karma. Naomi stole David and they built something together. Trish and I will do the same. Her song...
