Make-Up Wake-Up

This poem really is a slam. Please consider watching this live performance on my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7whtE5vY2cg

 

I feel the gaze of the man I love as I cover myself in chemicals.

His head behind mine in the mirror, still sitting in the still-warm bed

He’s going to be late if he doesn’t get a move on.

 

He watches as I paint my face

Oblivia

 

Oblivia 

 

You look at me through your new found fashionista,

Tell me that I am boring,

I understand,

Why would you speak of the

Dull state of today?

Stars, planets, climates, people, love,

 

You perspire to the empty beat of a London club,

Held together with Hennes zip,

Peer through designer lenses,

Moulded to diamond encrusted frames,

 

Colourful ri...

if the consensus was unanimous

even then he preferred anonymous

he was better than the lot of us

The Jagged Edge of Love

This must be my longest night
the moon laying its heavy light right down

and scenes replaying; rose or shit tinted now

I found the jagged edge of love
it cut right across my heaving...

The Latest Craze

The Latest Craze
 
Oh fucking hell!, the latest craze.
The Scouse brow look.  Oh happy days!
 
Big gargantuan caterpillars on orange birds.
Big fluffy things, like hairy turds.
 
There’s lads who go out at night, chasing beaver.
There getting secret lessons off…. Sigourney Weaver.
 
Because its like chasing aliens in our town.
They’ve got bo...
