I write when umbrellas open
When I am late for work
When the building is on fire
When the dog needs food
When the party is over
When I should really get moving
I write when there are more important things
And there are always always always
More important things--
Living in this world
And choosing to write poetry
Makes about as much sense as
Sitting on ...

didn’t finish the story
didn’t get to the ending
never found out what happened
to the monster or the princess
you were called away
by stupid adult things
I’m sleeping on my own
it’s gotten scary
need you to come back
don’t need anybody else
to feel safe
I wonder why
you ran away
in stories for kids
of all ages

She tried to say 100 times
How She wanted just
to be near you
She stood in the fire
Only to drown
Waiting to be the reflection in your eyes
You'll never know
How much you did for her
How just a smile opened her
Maybe it wasn't really you
Maybe she just remembered
Maybe she found her own way back
Truthfully it does...

If you are killed while working for the government
Determine assassination or murder is what we face
Do we consider your grand significance or influence
Or should it be more about job title and salary based

Guiltily guiltily think
the thoughts are soon what stink
the mind is like
a rusty trike
with pedals out of sync
Victory victory now
there isn't a method how
the present is
the place we live
what's now we must allow
this subtle trickery lie
to think we must comply
the truth is one
the nose will run
a lie we must defy

A large gnu stood on
my polished shoe - I
wasn't sure what to do
until I heard the famous
Mick Jagger who was
singing Hey Gnu Get
off of my shoe. That's
when the nutty revellers
passed by my house
singing Blue Suede shoes.
Who heard of anything so
absolutely ruddy ridiculous?

We are all stage actors
we have to perform and disappear
no matter how difficult is the task
we need to think and got to start
life may remain good
or cruel to be understood
whether you are in soup or trouble
you got to make a way out or struggle
there is no need to pass on the blame
and claim innocence

Poems, deep on many levels,

At such a time, we should give thanks
That Mister Larkin did his stuff.
It’s true he had a gloomy side
And used the odd indecent word,
But nobody would claim his work
Would better be unseen or heard.

They called you the Swedish baby,
With your white blonde hair
And bright blue eyes.
A Surrey Scandinavian.
But your skin tone was more southerly,
As if you’d spent your first two weeks of life
Sunning yourself on the Côte d'Azur.
A pleasant surprise, given your pasty parentage
The eyes and hair remain, twenty years later
But alas the sun-kissed look was short lived

Thaw the frozen love, melt it now

I will sleep tonight too
with memories of a good time
packed in the suitcase of the past.
Until the almonds from my eyes call to you
while we learn to live
life will pass in a desolate void.
There will be pros and cons
for all goodness, sins, mistakes,
for one skipped storm
for an eternal life.

squandering his inherited earth.
slewn of all charred flesh
the tracks build on, and on.
and you can see doom coming

I stood in the wind for you,
The gale that blew my love away.
You watched me from your crazy world,
And still I stood alone.
And then the rain fell, like my tears.
Still I stood upon that hill.
I waited for the sun to shine,
But still it never came.
I stood there while the white snow fell.
I stood there in the darkest night.
Yes - I'm glad you're warm inside,

Your cousin's in the pub,
He's been boozing since 11am
Aye, there's the rub.
Look in the Gilt mirror
Inspect the back of your mind
Microscopically construct an armed robbery —
you dirty, rotten swine.
The suspect proceeded to inspect his nails, to laugh quietly to himself, to sip his whiskey, to look around, to frown.
Robbery is the state of play

A leopard's leap of faith
For the ability to claim
A primordial goodness
In the collective nous,
When the cable ties of comfort
Dictate the deleterious refrain,
Whereby a barrage of bullets
Signals one is thrice betrayed
Right before the rooster.

So Much For the Everyday
The music of silence is the sound
Of our souls breathing.
Their slow, strongly rhythmic cadence
Is that of vigorous but frail hearts beating.
But you must listen, carefully, should you wish to hear it;
The tumult of living can easily drown and overwhelm
That steady breath until, almost exhausted,
We lay down our burden and just listen.

And shake her behind for all the lonely guys

Was one of many signs, to which I was certainly wise
In front of all the others, I asked her to dance
