Eat or heat my stiffening bones
Like demons in the night on paid vacation
Aesop dons his tanning lotion
Admires his Trumpian colour and prays
For constancy with his New Look.
Golden girls, clicking high heels, sweeping, swaying hair
An oasis of ambiguity in the desert, for the parched
And for us all.
Unsure how we feel in response to a death
And twelve lo...

Time to slake our thirst for words
A cerebral circle of wordsmithery
Burying two dozen rats
In your neighbour’s garden
Under their prized rose patch
Whom you’d never liked one night
There’s a rat in the allotment –

So the broken beasts of shadows that speak
A bird, drawn in sand,...

LONG LIVE ANGER UNLIMITED!
Summertime should never die...

The River Jordan has turned radioactive
Vultures in the gym flex and strain
Through cluttered concrete layers
Vultures pounding dents from floor removed
No electricity in the gym
Nigel talking about milkshakes
The monsters under the bed

Wallowing in darkness like warthogs in a pool
Horrendous December in the Gym
Under my duvet a donut prods my lust.
Outside the ambulance carries the lost prophet Susan
Through the slashing rain.
Channelling memories that everybody liked
More than joy, joyriding with sweaty socks leaving
A pile of charcoaled grief.
Grim and grimmer walked away
Without a gl...
