A poem’s appearance is of little consequence
But the moon was sad as only the moon can be.
Men in tears seek to flee the nightmare of their lives
We dream that with fingers we can pluck guitars
The calmness of flowers, the depths of moments,
The completeness of a live birth;
White sobs slide into our eyes
Remembering the smile of a mother, a lover,
On the fortunate day of our first kis...

longing for a doll's house,

Who dies on a Friday night?
Years ago now
The silly question lingers
Not looking for an answer
Who dies on a Friday night?
To scare away sadder thoughts
And complicated feelings and
Who dies on a Friday night?

Also by Jeannot:Virus | Fading | Right side up | Nothing out of me |
Sat here again splaying the phrases
almost photographic, tapping minds
into my aged remarks letting frame
pictures grey those partitions wise,
but the room years pursuit for youth,
dragging that pen for a crayon,
drawing foetal scrawls on umbilical walls
confused written out in blind art,
too young to be theirs, too old to be mine.

I Hate Lying
I hate lying;
it’s a weakness.
It shows a truth;
that others rule me.
If I have to lie;
it’s to avoid pain,
discomfort, and shame.
To make you feel good.
Slaves lie to the boss;
to save their lifeline.
But, to hell with him,
and his profit.
I live my life,
to never lie.
My freedom dies,
under your rules.
If I must lie,
you won’t be near.
I love to be ...

People who are at higher risk
especially old poets
who have serious emotional
relationships to their poems
Poets so wrapped up
in their work
they have no idea
what is going on
in the outside world
poets who live
secluded in their words
and seldom come out of their shells
except for praise
a good round of applause.

A day will come when we will get older,
Our scars will be printed as wrinkles,
Vultures will sing us a lullaby,
The fallen leaves will abscond from its roots,
The wind will whistle our demise,
The day will cry,
The night will fold its mat,
And rivers will stop running helter-skelter.
There will be a moment of silence,
Our sweat will be sweet as honey
For no sweetness can stand its...

The Ludford in question is the one on the Lincolnshire Wolds, not the one close by Ludlow in Shropshire.
Bellowing past the close mown grass,
big wagons thunder at ancient stone
to drown a chorale's seeping. Prone,
the organ's praiseful chords sublime
are couched within its sanctuary; crass
conceiver of everlasting life: His, not mine.

In nineteen thirty, Bradman piled on runs at Lord’s;
We sprinted from the bus to beat the hordes.
Our fancy was the first place in the queue.
Did we know then those sharpening their swords?
We should have checked, to see how much was true.
In nineteen thirty-two, the worldwide slump took hold;
There was no fuel to save some from the cold.

They all turn into madness.
Fear, the poison, injected too often.
A vaccination to prevent you from optimism,
from being an individual,
from the hope you kept deep inside.
You are infected with gloomy thoughts and panic feelings,
a fever of silence.
Only your own mind can set you free,
let you heal and open your eyes for beauty, kindness
and the hidden truth.

Dear Weary and Tiresome Souls,
When you get caught up with years from the past

It’s easy to wander when the narrow gets too straight.

Not recognised in the mirror

he has taken clouds for his friends

It’s been a source of some regret that I had missed my chance
