August 2017 Collage Poem – Obscene

entry picture

Dave left to stab an unwary autistic


The loneliness of sand.


The man with the photo left

Leaving small details which invoke a hidden world.




Freeing slaves from hidden bondage

Pandora had a lot to answer for


Sand in my toes

Sand in my boots sinking in rotten socks

Memories of Mumbai with my daughter,

Waiting for the monsoon


146 million grains are but just

Sand in my shoes

The Tao that cannot be named.

One of our more 'poetic' collage efforts.

By the way, I have completed The Complete Marble, a complete collection of our collage poems from 2011 - 17. Over a hundred pages!

They say too much salt is bad for you but under certain conditions I can see no harm in it at all - - - the poem itself I must say is absolutely obscene!
