November 2017 Collage Poem: Frozen
Gossip is simmering internal fathoms deep
So crazy for you I’m petrified by love
Witches watch the children cry,
As the jazz man freezes at what is here,
The Tesco Ghost floats like a butterfly
But gets stung by a speeding lorry
Freezing weapons like bullets
Then swallows wanting to come home
Leaves no more to be said
Frozen in fear, preserved in death.
Stalactites of alchemy, hearts beat
Each summer’s noon.
