Ekphrastic Visions - February 2019 Collage Poem
Helix barriers all over the world
Riddles flow through digital death traps
What is a man now with no cheap cigars
A mad dead love of afterthoughts gone
Mad Tony's hologram cycles around the
Lanes of South Wales as Alexa
Shouts "Give us 20 pence!"
Ooh! I can see Winnie the Pooh
In The wardrobe!
The candle, the book, and the wardrobe;
Wet washing and daggers; the black and the grey.
Poems in cardboard boxes wait to be unpacked
Cardboard words that fake emotions
Words and images, like jigsaw pieces
Horses sit in the docks at Salford Quays
In Lowry's legacy holding hands with Tony Wilson
Horse-whipping sex shame, not quite
Religious, stick to walking your dog pull
Wesley's the John
And the Charles
To whoa Esmi
When Bunyan's progress no longer touches
Girls' kinetic hearts.
