Burnt

My legs are wobbly jellied eels Bones deformed yet heavy-leaded anchors Like when I’m sick from flu, sweating, Reaking sweet cough syrup and Rolling around in blankets. Oh, I’m a pig stuffed at Christmas And I can hear me squealing. Stuck holding a candle Even when it’s burnt my hands Even when the light has […]

Grain

[In response to ‘ This Lime-tree Bower my Prison’ by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I am not who once I was Neither you Be true, be frank. Where once my tree did hold fruitful bower Flush with leaves and berry for the picking Now look! I have lost. Rings engraved in grain circle ever higher But […]

Bird song

I, in the middle Of this chaos Search the cold blue lagoon Elegant as a sea of whiskey Intoxicated by the fumes. God knows I Still haven’t figured out how But The sun it strengthens Not from both sides Not from any side I yet see Though it is there The water’s shimmering. As I’m […]

A memory

I looked in the bin today and saw our wedding book In the recycling We are broken But we’re good for the environment. Don’t put it with the doggie faecal matter No that would be wrong Just lie it on top of yesterday’s news Or free it up for someone’s fish supper Plenty more fishes. […]

Tempest

Through swirling winds Whistling kettles burning steam screech wildly into the night No more, no more I say cowering down upon the floor But there is nowhere to hide from winter’s icy storm. As such the bristling frozen empty branches beckon the boundless squall on Buckling and creeking No bird flaps to breach the fractured […]

When Eyes Open

When I look into your eyes I.  Indeed. Look.  Look through the eyes of love You look fantastic. At the bottom of everything Lash mascara Eyes open Eyes blinking. Kanye loves Kanye Blunt eyes stare down.  Hopeless. Helpless romantic but blue twisted orange organic free-wheeling ecstasy. And all for the love of you. Easy Sunday […]

51st State

Mountain borders Rolling desert Grassland trapped with snow. So primed and pounding The vein of loud, proud Such a drug Salutes and fist pumps Oil-soaked green Let run. Hazardous slippery healthcare Business more the real goal. Blood of the earth Volatile, The best, Latest Just introduced processed and luxuriously tempting. This bond will be 100% […]

Day 50: Me

So here I am, just me alone I write to the world these words to see If anyone feels the same as me. I cock my head you bend your neck You mirror me or just a flex? The days draw long And nights draw cold All this lol hash tag smiley face Makes me […]

Day 49: Ireland

Green pastures stretch and grow so ever strong // To stand upon earth cold and unyielding, // You’ll see her faithful tides come here and sting // Salt spray upon our heads to cleanse all wrong.
