ZANCE from my new book

 

 

 

Zance

A man who wants to be a God

Man only not a supernatural being?

Exactly what are you and why?

Man enough to dare to be a God

 

MAJOR INSOMNIA

CORPORAL SLEEP

Biscuits

Biscuits
It will take time to adjust to this new reality
There will be good days and bad days on the way
Along with other pre-discerned times unmentionable
Where life will be Mad Max esque and totally lawless
What will I do at such times and what will life do to me?
Tea and biscuits with pals or robbing banks with sawn offs?
Or both...

KIA

KIA

 

Oh, mighty planet of fire and of ice,

you are the bounty of life

and of all things ever made.

You belong in all worlds especially ours

where the frozen water at your poles

and the fire at your middle heart

make all life yours to control.

 

Creatures of fire swim in

seas of molten lava

while beings of ice glide

over infinite frozen ice la...

TELL

 

TELL

 

Alternative worldview as I sit on my throne,

trolleys in the car park only purpose to exist.

Tell me what is it like to be a pond?

See a mirror in your smooth serene exterior,

are you reeling inside under the surface like me?

Danger of drying up in summer stagnant stinking water.

Frozen solid two seasons later hard as stone.

Are you me or am I yo...

WHAT I SEE

 

WHAT I SEE

 

The things I’ve seen will amaze a million people,

I have seen mountains of stone collapse into dust in a second and the power of the sea swallow up whole continents as if they were so many grains of sand in the tide.

I have seen the diversity of life on Planet Earth

from the dinosaurs to the aliens who will take over the world in three centuries’ time.

COLLAGES

 

COLLAGES

 

Some of the weirdest shapes I’ve seen are hanging in the sky, a portent of things to come or so say the dark masters.

Are they here to protect us or to destroy us, to fill our lives with evil?

Iridescent colours cast their hue making shadows dance across the land.

In all the towns and cities the culturists plan their revenge to rid their domain of the dark m...

SPANKING PADDLE SNAIL

 

 

SPANKING PADDLE SNAIL

 

I know a guy who works in the power station shovelling coal into the big fat hungry generator to light up the local towns and cities with the light we all take for granted.

In his spare time he likes to dress as a snail and be spanked with a large alloy-spanking paddle till his snail shell is black and blue. He once nailed his bollox to a board an...

FOREVER POND

 

FOREVER POND

 

Gonna jump into the pond in my garden

down towards forever.

I see it crystal clear shimmering

like the very air on a winter’s day.

Love hearts stuck onto fragile flesh

mark my passage but yours is time,

stands time, as water flows and light sparkles

as distance is unwanted, direction is unknown.

On my way to you, wonder idly,

are ...

INTO MY MIND

 

 

INTO MY MIND

 

Monochrome images swirl and collide on the surface of my mind,

round and round they go through the loops and coils of my brain.

Slowly they submerse themselves in colour, so much colour more

than in a rainbow.

Every image and sight I have ever seen is in here all waiting to show

themselves when the time is right.

The alcohol I had earli...
