November 2017 Collage Poem: Frozen

entry picture

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


Crazy one-upmanship,

Leaves no more to be said

Frozen in fear, preserved in death.


Stalactites of alchemy, hearts beat

Each summer’s noon.

Poetic minds did not freeze
instead they came to life
on this cold November night.
