Us two coffin dodgers off pittance pension collecting
fully flowered umbrella protected
against the descending watery onslaught,
dancing, but not in a happy carefree Gene Kelly
purposely foot soaking way,
but in the opposite pavemented pool avoiding way.
Today is a pissed wet through to our market towns skin
moan worthy Monday midday
but easily, agreeably deferred by ...

Sun cooked highway
welcome A/C cooled car.
Flared denim legs mile upon mile weakened
hash smoking himself to sleep.
Has travelled other journeys too
but not of this earth
that always lifted him high and clear
of realities jagged rocks
and into rainbow skies.
But man! those come-downs!

Time to do away with the bullshit
superficial crap thought necessary
to prop up thin-walled tunnels of materialisms
we have walked through too many times
stopping more than often to purchase fooling fashions.
Growing blinder and dumber
step by duped step.
Insights and beliefs filmed over
with double-dealing fabrications

Oh! this house I pass daily
where my fantasies live
and dreams could be born
the unaccountable times my heart had
and still knocks on its door
the windows I keep looking in
like those of your soul
hoping that one day I will see myself inside
finally coming to life.

From seeds of the earth
grow fruits of natures loom
to be over-ripened by death

Inspired during last nights most welcome downpour.
Heavens invaluable pennies
continuing on and off
to reimburse our life-saving account.

Despite its increased ruinous state, the detritus
how well we recognise and remember this shabby town
toddled these unhappy streets.
For no one in their right mind lives here now
the right-minded simply pass-through
stopover guests of some dire hotel
whose very short stays
were no doubt transfixed with total dissatisfaction.
Abandoned cars, many smashed windows...

With a brain no bigger than this pea
With a mind all at sea
With a vow to never leave the self ignited hellish flames
With a preference to wallow in his own sad games
With a cowardly reputation based on hate
With a sick reserve of unwarranted agression he tries to dominate
With a soul empty of truth
With a pack of lies he blames his tormented youth
With a heart black as nig...

Goes out of his way to get in the way of others
typical grin masked snide
a below the belt puncher
paints brave pictures of himself with brushes of self-delusion
his teeth probably blackened by all the lies forced through them
public whinging enemy number one
paranoid prattling prick
detests anyone stealing his thunder
constantly scanning with his cycloptic-like eye ( the o...

playing shooting games
with other kids
aims his toy gun at them
pulls the plastic trigger.
To him at that time
they are the baddies
although innocent baddies
for his invisible bullets.
Lining the others up in imaginary crosshairs
and with each trigger pull
he sees them pretending to die,
actions which indelibly plants

In their unavoidable memories,
keep repeating keep returning
to page one in the minds of old soldiers.
Cruelty again sending them all
down the same old paths
to be wearily, sadly, trod once more
leading to long ago madnesses and chaos
where brotherly ghosts linger
trying to smile with torn faces
trying to wave without hands

Bad times have been sent packing
not by the husband
by a certain unseen someone
always close at hand.
With what excitement and joyous sounds
the migratory birds return
having unburdened themselves of a long flight
He pours the tea
they both make themselves comfortable
by the fire that says 'everything is okay now'
and in the morning they will step outsi...

from times bank
placed in holed pocket
Wednesday 29th May 2019 4:09 pm
embracing each other
in white silence.
in a heavenly slideshow
of vapourous landscapes.
An ethereal armada
of everchanging shapes
drifting en masse

We pass boulders representative in size of elephants
winter grey, similarly creased.
A bobbing buoy iconically hatted with a gull
clangs out its presence across the water
but does not distract our widened eyes
from gazing astoundedly
at the semi-submerged lorry-sized
ocean-going giant with a miniature brain
peaceful Mobyesque monster
holding our attention's fo...

MAIN COURSE-fresh air
DESSERT-a dwindling portion of time

Roses to be
slowly gaining ascension
culminating in pinnacles of scarlet profusion
eager to taste
the dewy dawn of first day
slenderly sinuously meandering
seeking the fullness
of summers honey toned light
requiring only the guidance
of loving green fingers
to help prolong their con...
