Tunnels

Even when there’s no fight we fight and we do it to exorcise those demons that delight in it, putty and plasticine, fashioning the obscene or making a meme we are putty and plasticine. The break out will come and we’ll take out the guards, the sentinels, and flee through the halls of some greater…

Another Friday near Finchley

No one said that Cinderella had to be a lady, it may be that she was, but because it’s a fairy tale we are left to wonder. I wondered for a long time how long time could be, the answer didn’t come to me all I got was a potbelly and whiskers. That’s the chance…

Mood swings

It’s the seasonal adjustment the must have in the window the want because it’s Autumn and the need before the shops close. I am frightened of the shadows flitting past the evening door and the ladies of the darkness who want and then want some more and I have nothing left to give them. November’s…

    Handsome, and some and scandalously so.. ‘…go on, you’re a swan’   At the dawn of time we woke, you spoke,   the alarm went off the lights came on, the industrial revolution and then we were gone and only the nursery rhymes remained…

Filling in the blanks

  Snow and Jalapeno hit them hard but take it slow, them things kills you don’t you know? and Grammarly puts up a flag makes it kill instead of kills but if I’ve been killed a thousand times that’s a lot of kills, init Grammarly?…

Working it out ( draft copy )

    Where do you start to draw the line between the past and the present because it seems to me that they are one and the same, okay, that’s a leap but keep this in mind, the past is what has given us the details to put on the present’s blank page which we…

A touch of being touched

The module I handed in was ( at the time ) engaged in a Lunar landing, in that unbelievable moment of madness I took leave of my senses, but they’ll remember me now. Up there at NASA it’s not a case of mi casa su casa and Trump got the jump on me, now I’m…

Negev nomad

The unexpected I expect but I expect that you do too. In the Shires no dreaming spires just spikes to keep the homeless wakeful, that’s hateful. This ‘green and pleasant land’ ruled by a thieving ragtag band only gives a helping hand when pushing you over the edge. I could emigrate, hibernate or just hate…

Jumble sale

Eyes shot hair’s in a mess why is it so that regaining consciousness comes with a price? in migration mode I hit the road which as you can see is a violent side to me. Life and or living we have or we throw it away, I could easily ‘etch-a-sketch’ a prize giving day for…

Fifteen cents on the dollar

The diamonds come free when the Sun shines on the…see what I did there? Just messing about, but not on the river, the boat’s in the shipyard, they have to refit  her. It’s not going anywhere and neither am I. Now where was I? oh yes, not going anywhere staying indoors beside her. A chess set,…

‘I will gladly pay you Tuesday…’

‘This must be the ‘moment’ that I’m in’, said him, with sleep in his eyes and his hair in a state, wouldn’t you think that the ‘moment’ could wait at least until him was presentable? It takes longer now for my sight to adjust. I struck a classical pose and the ‘thinker’ who knows of…

This train is departing

Eyes down for a full house on the underground London Town where care is a carefully used commodity It’s all about the numbers cram them in rinse and repeat then get them out. 91159 they’re sitting fine and dandy in this carriage which is not so handy if you’re me and you’re stood not good…

Stick shift

Buying a jeep cheap not a good idea when the rear suspension’s shot, a god should have a hot rod (no euphemism was intended in the previous line) a speed machine, sleek and clean and not a jeep even if it is cheap. I lean towards Shank’s pony but only for short trips if I…
