Old As Love

strange things go through my head

my mind has been to distant places

days merge blindly into each other

lately I've lost a memory for faces

 

just how long have I been in here?

unlike my head my cock still works

wild fears roam like buffalo and yet

in my pants an untamed tiger lurks

 

the matron omits to cater for that

they seem past it most of my peers

yet my r...

Nibs

you needn't be famous

to put down your story

the written word only

enhances your glory

 

my memoirs are done

inspiration has run dry

only a pile of nibs is left

an ink blot mars my tie

 

its quite a work of art

though I say so myself

my sober chapters will

enhance many a shelf

 

its been a strange life

u-turns and blind alleys

an excess of aspirat...

First Light

thorn rose in quicksand

a pale siren lost at sea

gurgling a hymn, that's

what she means to me

 

she's saying little of late

quieter now than of yore

time's calmed her down

once I called her a whore

 

came home at all hours

partied till she dropped

spent money like water

manic how she shopped

 

once a nymphomaniac

in bed she wore me out

I was not t...

Rouge

at right angles to beauty,

geometry's not my friend,

full reservoirs of make-up

my proportions won't mend

 

other girls seem so pretty

my torso's a basket case

lobster nose, carrot hair,

mirrors crack at my face

 

I dream of drastic surgery

features lissom and new

Romeos on my doorstep

aftershaves in a queue

 

each day flushed torture

in a self-consc...

Wings

nothing's certain anymore,

I dont know what matters,

confusion paints my head,

my inhibitions lie in tatters

 

I've found that special one

for whom I'd long yearned

to make up for those times

I'd had my fingers burned

 

always terrified of women,

felt they were over-sexed,

averse to the physical side,

passion left me perplexed

 

seemed safer to keep awa...

Grassland

hinterlands intact,

forests not a hell,

grass not wheat,

soft cold rain fell

 

heavens doing what

open clear skies do,

pilgrims of sunlight,

days honestly new

 

no forever anymore,

now the foe is time,

some end's in sight,

verses don't rhyme

 

tarnished the sward,

ox-skulls bleaching,

toll paid for a blind,

low, over-reaching

 

truths die...
