...and the window out of my kitchen

lets a bright blue sky in...

snip snip
           gardening magazine
bits and pieces
print large
               text small
flowers here
blue shears crop wintry bargain buys
compost your neighbors  cabbages
kneel and weeping dig

best prices paid for sheds
my hands ache with gay arrays
                                    suduko and wire eats the bugs of heavy scent
Heaven scent and saplings bent
letters from reader...

Persephone's ruin

entry picture

The hour is slim!

the time to entwine

with her and

with advantage

inhale the heavy

offering from between

the jaws of her

open thighs.

Persephone's tasty flesh

renders her cleft

of wet truth-

she can slake this thirst-

can assuage my ache when

enthralled against

the serpent earth

with legs knotted

we lay tangled in

ancient ruin.

What!

My rhyming couplet

-at the metre's expence-

is knowing the difference

if this makes sence-

is when to use when

from

when to use whence.

Wipers (D minor)

entry picture

D Minor 

Jazz guitar
Slow
in D minor

A note that's allowed
to resonate
like
the pain
that's caused
and delivered

the shadowed sound
from the speakers
-is the sigh-
that pulls me back
to that place
but I wont respond
just keep 
-the kerb a foot away-
from turning
back around
to her

my wants 
are the rear-view 
mirror
that cause the
eye's to blink
wet memories
away
...

Ancient ruin

The hour is slim!
the time to entwine
with her
and with advantage
inhale
the heavy offering
from between the jaws
of her open thighs.

Persephone's tasty flesh
renders her cleft
of wet truth-
she can slake this thirst-
can assuage my ache
when, enthralled against
the serpent earth,
with legs knotted,
we lay tangled
in ancient ruin.

Inebriation

I left the party early
with my coat and hat still on
wearing a letrasetted syntax
and its addled lexicon

leaning against itself while falling

I heard that gravity was calling

?where's the wall

and like the guests who once
were standing

had all left or long since gone

Lissy

Lissy at work

by Tommy Carroll

 

Unless otherwise stated...

"excuse me!"

(her elbows digging into my shoulders)

...all photographs are my own work.

Unless otherwise stated all wording...

"can't you take a hint?"

she shrugs

...are my own work.

"The next time you look

over my shoulder and

read my work..."

(thinks: "Keep your comments

Inside your pants;
