June 2019 Collage Poem: Going Back in Time

entry picture

 

Overhanging your tiredness

Coming home

 

Ah 60’s! Too young, let’s do it again.

60’s women, short skirts, knickers

 

Don’t look now in Blackpool

The man selling sand is here again

 

What comes before?

Silent silver surfing by the sea

 

Falling into the past

Looking back, we see clearly.

 

Footprints in the sand of disbelief

Nowhere to fly across...

November 2017 Collage Poem: Frozen

entry picture

Gossip is simmering internal fathoms deep

So crazy for you I’m petrified by love

 

Witches watch the children cry,

As the jazz man freezes at what is here,

 

The Tesco Ghost floats like a butterfly

But gets stung by a speeding lorry

 

Freezing weapons like bullets

Then swallows wanting to come home

 

Crazy one-upmanship,

Leaves no more to be said

Frozen in...

June Collage Poem: Evil

entry picture

Baggy trouser party I will vote for you!

Faded flowers, flowing emotions

 

Jumping over invisible cats

A stucco heron stalks a halting river

Three bags full, why three, why he, evil be

 

Evil wears many faces

Ginger Dorris offered peanuts

I bruise easily. My shelter is flimsy

And fragmented. It tastes of shallowed wounds

 

Sometimes it's a blessing

When a tra...

April 2016 Collage Poem: Riddles

entry picture

 

Kerb crawl halt for furtive pleasures:

"I hope it's better now"

 

Icy as a boarding school shower

In mortal mind and nerve

A riddle is told...

What could it be no matter how I think

It is the wrong guess again!

 

Leaving you dumbfounded

Encoded in parrot-like movements

For April Fool's Day jokes

From day to night

 

Lost in Dickens, tonight is the best...

Stockport WoL Collage Poem: Shades

entry picture

 

Shades of wooden nowheres lead to light

Have you got a light

I need light

 

Instead of six lagers for breakfast

I had a piece of toast

 

Blood, hope, words can bring peace

 

In transition a panting breath

birth, life, death - always struggle, always joy

and always always words

 

Overrated Morrissey sprawls 

on sun-splashed lawns

weaving goodbye lac...

Heart of Stockport I

 

M60 atop Manchester's posterior cusp

Hurtling force divides and creates, binds and destroys,

Cut me slowly, cut me quick, careful now

Not too deep

 

Just like Concorde passing over

the viaduct with its engine vibrating

on the tracks

I'm lost. Blocked. What is hidden in the river?

 

The naked road is rusting away

I follow the arterial route to your heart

Gia...

April Collage Poem

entry picture

Flowers of colour under summer blue

Daisy chains bind maidens tight

Bluebells ring out their charming spell

 

The river's reflection may not be

what you want to see

 

The seasons shout hello but whisper goodbye

Spring colours into life; grey memories, white swans

neglected lighthouses

forgotten

 

I would like to wish you all well

as I can't think of anything ...
