June 2024 Collage Poem: Under a Crystal Moon

entry picture

Landing craft, full of movement and sound

under the just-boiled moon


We walk the walk and the guardian angel

will always be there.

The crazy people had a lifestyle to change

by choosing a good wash.


Taxi! Follow that moon!

I’m sorry my lights aren’t working.

Fear not my friend is here The Angler Fish

He lives in a hovel surrounded by woodland


Vote for me because this space filler

needs to be filled


The kettle not long after the boil

Where I would see my own reflection

In eternal ballrooms and moonlit bedrooms

listening for footsteps


She walks the walk, hoarding habits

squared away, her celestial companion

the dead American in the pale blue shirt.

I like this: its disjointed structure curiously has a narrative which flows in a most pleasing way.

Poetry opens
Your mind
Several paths
Clues set
Deliberately hidden
Inside words
Working out
Pure pleasure
Resulting in
Bizarre possibilities.
