Xmas Collage Poem - Bonkersly Good

entry picture

 

Fire burning over memories of Christmas

Santa is riding high into the silk sky

But he cannot come here with Brexit a tie

 

Donna chewed on Santa’s long toenails

As he snoozed on Blitzen’s fat belly

 

Where streaks of Pollock green ache

Like August clouds

 

In love with feathers and glass

As the fires take it all away

 

Widened eyes of the dirtiest faces

...

November 2018 Collage Poem: Cheshire Housewives

entry picture

 

Cheshire housewife buys her Hereafter Insurance,

Works hard for nativity with port and gin

Our truth is, success means excess.

 

Then lies were common in family life

Waiting, hiding, broken, when when true

As your eyes sparkle through Mona Lisa smiles

And lies of untruth spoken words

 

Housewife with her gin

And tonic gives Santa a good

Time!

 

Heavy Mon...

Cultivate Life - October 2018 Collage Poem

entry picture

My lightened, chastened offspring

Return to me, unknowing

 

Pincher Martin feeds devious plots

Tick Tock

 

Am I living? Am I breathing?

Life created by a whimper

 

Hyenas rejected at a tender age

Babies burst from beautiful bodies

 

But human nature drives towards annihilation

Leeching veins cling for life through the zealous

Suffocation of being fed with ...

September 2018 Collage Poem: The Earth is Burning

entry picture

 

Strange seasons clip and slash new life

The hot sand blows into my soldier’s rations

The robot newsreader sounds like comical Ali

 

Bacon butties served under sniper fire

World’s end to wellies, flip-flop relief for Achilles

 

Do I deserve to be loved?

Drowning in an eternal sea of despondency

I rise up and say no

 

The season changes the earth burns

Naked ...

'Cloth and Club' - August 2018 Collage Poem

entry picture

Fidel Castro let go of the bed

His broken record bucks with static

 

Blame blame blame the

P.E. teacher who made my

Life grim.

 

The earth is burning, the earth is burning

May as well spend the weekend on Blackpool Sands

 

Love beats abortion, irony beats stupidity

Swirling around in a stark blood red orange

Lost in a made-up history of calming fire-pit ale

D...

A Marriage of Ghosts - July 2018 Collage Poem

entry picture

 

Aqueous humour's not very funny

Neither is how easily we forget

The story of each other's pain

 

Arranged marriages of spirits and the

remnants of deep pain

 

The sky is a plush blue velvet

Its papery clouds are upon it

As if they are lace - the 

Dew glistens on the grass

Like numerous bright eyes looking

Up at the sky

 

The wrong arrangement can be d...

June Collage Poem - Negatives

entry picture

Riots in another Eden, Eve’s tearful funeral,

Her truth was a lie and was all about Eve

Caged across anonymous affairs

Over poetic contexts in fragmented narratives

Through expectant open-mouthed pockets where paradise

Would never be the same again

 

Eve has escaped the serpent

But not its bite, she chases the dragon now

The blackened souls will always rule,

But not i...

March 2018 Collage Poem: Changes

entry picture

 

Poetry in unusual places

Yarn-bombing red as a spaniel

Line of poetry clutters in clusters

 

Faeries and Diddymen, aliens and witches

We transcend to rainbows when we die

Cold coffee cup clocks stuck at half-past six

 

The witch her face disfigured

Better methinks burnt at stake.

 

Lost in the past watching swallows flying north in spring

Swallows in blue s...

January 2018 Collage Poem: A New Life II

entry picture

Give everything away you won't need those things

Snow drops bring new beginnings and fresh starts.

 

New hopes, old fears, grasping at

The sky, fingers crossed for meaning

 

Does the eagle eat the dove, or the dove

Soothe the eagle?

 

The kings race across the snow and through

The winds of time to the new born truth.

January 2018 Collage Poem: A New Life I

entry picture

Birds in nests, delicate bluebells

Thrive in demanding abundance

 

Nature takes its course

As the animals go wild

Overcoming your insecurities

Whether swimming in lakes or crossing gateposts

Catching ghosts in the shadows

But you must let them go.

 

Run through the wind

And John said "Oh dear! Oh dear!"

 

Lozenge lawns running through the winds

 

He is ...
