Through a glass darkly

I wiped a spy-hole

of ash

from a skylight window

and wept

as pentecostal fire-balls

peppered pavement mounds

of pet dog excrement

and men - as drunken men -

teetering on the lip of madness

babbled unknown tongues

while drinking deep

of Tiskie twelve percent

◄ I sat with a girl

Was Wonderful ►

Hello Rick,

I only just saw this and it fried my brain a little.

I think maybe you should move to a nicer area and stop smoking weed in the loft.

Lovely to have to exercise my imagination Rick.

Nice one,

Cheers, Ray - I reckon the previously posted 'I sat with a girl' is better but after a week of wrestling a pome and getting nowhere - the sudden flurry of 3 of which 'Glass Darkly' was the third came as pleasant relief 😃

What more can you say Rick, except that there is a doleful splendour to the writing which lifts it from ground level.
