Nineteen thirty

When you can’t quite give it a name but you know it’s the same old same and you’re used to playing the game so you go right ahead. and where is here? far away or near? you’re never as certain as you once were When she sings like Al Bowlly soulfully slowly I think I’m…

The patch

It’s nonsense to rely upon the time when time has almost gone, but we hunger for one moment more that’s just the way it is. the young man at the coalface with a face just like an angel sees it from a different angle as he climbs up worn down cobblestones on the way home…

Watching

The curiosity looks too much like me ‘to be or not to be’ a coincidence. It creeps suspiciously silently, it is almost next to me and the curiosity frightens me. Even when I count to ten close my eyes and open them it’s still there. and more than curiously its eyes are not on me…

Slapped down

I don’t see much evidence of the one they call his eminence, perhaps I am blind to the faith. And yet the truth is nearer to me in the wonders of natural beauty so why deny? maybe genetically I’m wired up to the wrong strand. I hope so at least I can then understand that…

Combinations

Then as if to blind me as I soared into the sun your words came up behind me, but my mind was tied into the star and so I couldn’t find you. One more dream to put in the rack one more going and then coming back and what was all that about? Morning brings…

Wednesday

If I’m in pain and I am and I will be again, is it someone’s plan for revenge? is someone out there to get me? you get me? I pulled a muscle which is like pulling a girl without the attraction of nice things to come and yes not many muscles to go. Pain is…

Where’s the rest of it?

if this is the best then the best has to do, but I won’t have mediocre, semolina tapioca or plum duff, I want my just desserts. be careful what you wish for in a dish for dessert. The ‘diet of worms!’ is sold as a fish supper to poor people? or it might be something…

What it could be when it’s Wednesday

Then I have drank gallons from the well where hope springs eternal, watched as walls crumbled, saw the old ideas sink as the new came in I have been and am what I have seen and then became more. what does the blender know of a chefs passion? it just does what it’s made for…

The induction

Camel train

What a great start to the day, but then I woke the dreams like the night faded away into one more mind numbing Wednesday and it’s okay ok? it won’t last forever only forever lasts that long. But I really don’t mind it’s only one day a week it’s just the one day that reminds…

Someone said

Made of clay or it was yesterday, the colours seem to collide and my eyes melt into the scenery, Concrete! definitely, but somehow soft like the sand or the donkey shit. I could rebuild it but it wouldn’t be the same, People would forget the original name as I too would be forgotten. Shadows here…
